And there's no truck access thru the backseat of a 4-door. A "valet" locking system that allows the trunk to be locked seperately from the rest of the car is pretty much the norm for european cars -- even Saab did this on the 900's (and 99's for that matter). I think the obvious thing would have been for Saab to power this switch off the ignition switch, so that it's disabled when the car is off.
