I'm gonna be on the side of wishing auto lock was available on this vehicle. I also agree that I expected it would have the feature as all vehicles I've had over the years have had it standard. I didn't check as you get so used to "auto" features that you don't always notice until you need them. I do like it for safety as well. I have had someone try to enter my car before at a stop light and in a parking lot, so I do think it's a valuable feature. I now have to do the awkward "lock your door" move when someone gets too close to my car. More of a socially awkward annoyance than anything lol.
