I asked the dealer the same question and they said that, the auto lock feature is not avaliable on the FX.

Correct. We don't have that. For most people, it's a love it or hate it feature; you can't please everybody. However, I would think it would not have been too difficult to at least include this as part of the Tech package and make it selectable in the Vehicle Settings menus.

That has been a big area of confusion. You are referring to the atuo-lock feature which should be called the auto-RElock feature. This is a feature that automatically re-locks the doors after the specified period of time if they are unlocked (intentionally or accidentally) via the keyfob after they are initially locked and a door is not opened.

So you can't just walk away and expect the doors to lock by them self... That is VERY misleading! What is the point in having auto-Relock without auto-lock??? :(

Correct. The only purpose this feature serves is to re-lock the doors if you accidentally hit the unlock button while walking away from the car after you've already locked them. I had auto-lock on my Honda as part of the alarm system and it seriously spoiled me. You just don't want to leave your keys in the car, though. :oops: I can't think of any cars that have auto-lock as an OEM feature; it's typically an alarm feature.

I had autolock feature on my old bimmer, but I added improvents on it but closing all windows and sunroof 30 seconds after the doors are shut. Can still remember the day I dropped my key in the seat and left it was not fun.
