This is a discussion on Any way of setting auto locking doors on 13' WRX? within the Everyday Impreza Talk forums, part of the Community - Meet other Enthusiasts category; Originally Posted by Mikie13 That's a better answer I suppose. Makes more sense to me now...but I dunno...I'm just stubborn ...
I totally agree with ANY driving assistance on any cars. But automatic doors aren't gonna take over your driving skills, just solely safety and convenience. As years goes by, technology makes cars feel more comfortable at higher speeds and pretty much self drives and when acquiring those speeds, IMO 85% of drivers do not know what to do when there is a problem ahead or know how to handle situations at higher speeds.
I will never trust my car auto-braking, self parking, or whatever crap thats automated. It takes the feel away from drivers and cripples their ability as 'drivers' to adapt and learn.
I opened a new decision topic here:

An Arduino controller with GPS shield, a couple of relays, and I'll bet I could get it working in my car.
'cept I still don't want it. I dunno; I keep track of my environment, and react accordingly. Point taken about the convenience, though...the intersection of forgetfulness and carjacker probably wouldn't be a good thing for me.

I know the Range Rover incident you're referring to and, thankfully, that's not common. It also wasn't a car jacking; those guys were in a complete rage. Someone who wants to steal your car is not going to risk the exposure of it taking that amount of time. If it's not quick and easy, they'll hopefully leave in a hurry.
If someone can remember to use a turn signal indicator instinctively,they can learn to lock the doors instinctively. I just lock the doors myself once everyone gets in. It is like a reflex now.

Ooh,hang on. That is the throb of a turbocharged flat four engine. A sound which,all over the world,heralds the imminent arrival of a moron - JC.
Wow. OP asked a simple question and, instead of answers, gets vetted on his motive. It doesn't matter why he wants it, just that he does. If you can't help than why respond? BTW, I can't help, either...
For those who don't like techno aids, how do you feel about fuel injection? Really, if you're so into the experience shouldn't you be adjusting carbs instead? How about power steering or, better yet, AWD? Most hotshoes I'm aware of think RWD is the only way to go and AWD is for those who can't manage "real" driving. Anyone who responds with "Rally car this... Rally car that...", show us your relevant experience. Unless you drive Pikes or something like it, don't bother.
This reminds me of one responder in a post I made who said something like: "Cruise control is a recipe for disaster!".
