It offered one great feature, the driver could easily move over to the passenger seat which permitted the driver to exit the car on non traffic side. This could be a life saver with people driving while talking on cell phones. Many taxi passengers ask why the traffic side door of a taxi does not open from the inside . . It also makes you wonder why Saturn designed their three door model with the single back seat door opening on the traffic side. What were they thinking?
