Most vehicles have these problems in one area or another. GMs and Dodges have their pain in the rear, accessibility issues too. In order to change the heater core on a 99-07 Silverado you have to remove the entire dash from the firewall.

Ever change a power steering pressure line on a Honda Prelude? It's about six feet long and wraps (the long way) around the engine and down to the power steering rack that is behind and below the engine.

Replace the battery on a PT Cruiser? It's underneath the intake manifold plenum. If it needs to be jumped all you get are two little posts peeking up from underneath.

I can just imagine old timers in the 1950s complaining about the "complexity" of the (then) new 12v electric systems...

Maybe old timers from the turn of the 1900s complaining about them new fangled horseless carriages...
