    What is not safe about having a clearly labeled lever in plain view to open the doors if the battery dies. Now if they didnt put the lever in the car or didn't say how to open the doors than you might have a point. How is it Chevy's fault that the owner made the decision not to read the operating instructions that they provided with he car.
    Do you ever expect people to take responsibility for their own decisions.

Freedom lives, and through it he lives--in a way that humbles the undertakings of most men."

    I'm not a "car person," but what I've read says that the Corvette is an "all-electric" car. For example: "According to Corvette experts, there is a manual release inside the vehicle, but most people don’t know about it and many say it is difficult to see. The release is usually located on the left-hand side of the floorboard by the driver and the right-hand side by the passenger."

    No reasonable person would know that door release was there.
    Yea, who would notice a red lever with the picture of a door on it. There is no cure for stupid.

    As I've said, I'm not a car-person. If the quoted "Corvette experts" above say that most people don't know about the lever, why don't most people know?

    Normally intelligent people read their owners manual. Some people are so ignorant they evidently are unable to understand plane English. Old man should have had a pickup not a Corvette, especially if he was unable to operate it correctly.

    Wow. That's just a horribly sad story.

    Not everybody is perfect. Again, why did "Corvette experts" say that "most people" don't know about the lever? Are they lying?

    No doubt they are right. That just shows you that most people are to lazy to read their owners manual. And that's fine but you can't blame Chevy for people's laziness. If you watch the video someone posted earlier it shows exactly where the lever is. It's not hard to see and it is clearly marked
    The problem is that people today want to be able to blame someone else for all of the decisions they make so that nothing is their fault. Chevy built a car that in this case had no defects in it, they put in a saftey mechanism in the event of a dead battery and they put down how to open the doors in the owners manual. What more do they need to do.

    If you are going to insult a dead person as ignorant, at least use the correct word: "plane English".
