I also know there is the option to have the doors unlock when the vehicle is placed in park. That's the opposite of what I want, so maybe they do have the option somewhere.

Now that you mention it maybe that's what it said. You can have the doors unlock when it's put in park. It would be nice if you could choose to have the doors lock when you shift to drive.

You can set the doors to automatically lock when the car is placed in drive and you can set them to automatically unlock when the car is placed in park, I have both of these things set on my 07 XLS. Using the Navi Screen, you press the SET Button, and then EQUIPMENT (I think that is what you do, no guarantees as to names, I can't remember right now) and somewhere in the list there is the option for the doors. Look this stuff up in the manual, that is how I found out how to do this, it is really easy with the Navi System.

In the US Outlander, no option to lock the doors when you shift to D. The only option is to open the door locks when on you shift to P.

I am in the US, and my car is the US version, and yes you can, I have it set, it is possible if you have the navi system, if you don't, then you have to go to the dealer I think, I have the navi so I wouldn't know. It is in the menu with everything else, look it up in the manual!

I have the US Outlander too, and I have been to the dealer, and the Technician told me that it's not an available option in the Outlander. I have the Navi and it's not in the Manual. If you can show us how you did it via the Navi (with pictures perhaps?) then perhaps we can confirm if it's really possible.

Ok, this is a little strange. You are right that it is not an option on the Navi screen, the only option I see is unlock when in park, which I did set after I got my car. But, I do not see lock when put in drive, which is really odd, because when I got my outie, it already did this, I did not set it, it came like that. I don't know how to set it or un-set it, but it must be possible because mine does do it. There is a way, but no one seems to have any idea how...

Okay, I don't mean to imply you're lying. I am actually interested in getting it to work that way in my Outlander too. I guess if we find out, a lot of people here will be happy about that. Does your door auto lock after a certain time after being shifted to D or does it go by the speed (say like 5mph?)

I talked with someone at MMNA about auto door locks. He stated that some cars have it and some don't. I guess I have an Outie which does not!!! I haven't had my new car in for service yet, but I will definitely ask them when it is in the shop.

Has anyone found an answer?
I just got a 2008 Outlander with navigation and there is no option to auto lock doors in the menus. Car manual doesn't mention it either.
