Auto-lock finicky-ness

This is more of an irritant than a major issue, but has has anyone noticed any issues with the auto-locking feature on their GC? I know the doors are supposed to lock once you hit a certain speed (15 or 20 mph?)

However, mine seem to intermittently not lock right away - sometimes I'll drive all the way through my neighborhood at 25 MPH without them locking. Once I stop at a stop sign and start moving again, the doors will then lock. Other times they seem to lock as soon as I pull out of the driveway.

Thanks.

It obviously knows that you live in a safe neighborhood.

Yes you have to turn that feature on in the menu setup on the EVIC. You must be stopped and in park to be able to go through the setrtings. I believe the one your looking for is auto lock and unlock. I have it set to auto lock and unlock all doors. I hate my wifes car which only unlocks the drivers door.
So far my 2012 Overland seems pretty consistant when it locks the doors. Atleast I think anyway.
