That is what I call unlocking a car.

I looked at a Saab 9-3 once. The battery was out in the remote (sure) so I unlocked it with the key. When I pulled on the door handle, it came off and all the lock hardware fell into the bottom of the door. Needless to say I did not do the planned test drive.

Seriously, it looks like that door have been opened and the lock worked on before.
