As a result the power door locks do not operate so you are unable to unlock the rear doors to let your kids out. I guess you could have them climb between the seats but what happens if its a new born strapped down in a car seat? If the fire spreads fast this could be a real problem. Scarey to think about..... BMW better figure this out quick.
Thats a great thought. I wonder how you do get them out. No power to unlock the doors, and you cant open them from the outside. Ill be listening since my first kid is two weeks away..
