Don't think so. The default is to lock when the car gets to a few miles an hour.

I don't think so. How can you'll be able to get off of the car if the car is locked up when you shut it off?
You have to lock the car with the remote control while you are outside of it.

Sorry for phrasing it badly :(

I meant when i arrive and get out of the car i want it to lock itself so i do not need to touch my smart fob at all.

It doesn't work that way either, you need to either touch the fob, or touch the little black pad on the door after getting out to lock the car.

Why touch the FOB? Mine stays in my pocket.

Having the car always lock itself immediately would be incredibly annoying to me.
If I want the doors locked when I exit, I open the driver's door then while still seated press the dash button to 'lock doors'.
So when I get out and shut door the car is locked.

Well, i would LOVE to just get out of the car, shut the door and walk away knowing it will lock itself. Kind of like aftermarket alarms have it.

Think that option is in the menu under settings. Auto lock.

Hey 25PSi,

Check out pg. 68 of the 2nd printing of your owner's manual here. You'll find what you're looking for.
