    Auto Door Locking

    Does anyone else not like their car automatically locking the doors with no way to turn it off? You can turn off the automatic unlocking of the doors but not the locking of them... strange. My Silverado is the same.

    I would like to be able to drive around with my doors unlocked. Am I the only one?

    I too would like to drive around with my doors unlocked. Seems like a simple software function that should be available.

    I know what you mean, but with the cruze, if you pull on the inside handle when they're locked it will unlock that one door, whether your 're in drive or park.

    Software program with a purpose......?

    Maybe the door locking while in gear is to raise the "score" when it come to crash protection.....doors are more likely to remain latched.

    That certainly could be it. I just do not like them locking, then I drop off my wife, put it park and they unlock, then they lock again when I put it in gear, etc. Too many cycles.
