Re: Curious Logic to Automatic Door Locks

That is what I have been assuming as I am pretty sure I have exceeded 15 mph without triggering the locks. But I will pay more attention to this over the next week to be sure.

Re: Curious Logic to Automatic Door Locks

I believe on my 2013 Limited, I can enable or disable the auto locks through the EVIC. I like the function, but I was just curious when the locks triggered. I will pay strict attention to my speed...

Curious Logic to Automatic Door Locks

I have a 2013 GC Limited with the V6 engine. I absolutely love it. I am curious about the logic for the automatic door locks. What I mean by that is I would like to know exactly what combination...

Re: First Long Distance Drive

The drive was delightfully comfortable, and the scenary was outstanding. I so much prefer to drive on the secondary highways, such as the US Highway system, than the Interstates.

Re: Laredo X vs. Limited

I forgot to mention, the Limited is a V6. As much as I would like the V8, I think the V6 has enough power for my needs. And I like its gas mileage.
