My father-in-law is in town for the weekend and he's mentioned that he
wishes his wife's 2005 Subara Legacy Outback would automatically lock
the doors when it's placed in drive. I would imagine that this might be
something that you could program, but I can't find anything in the
owner's manual to this effect. Can anyone tell me definitively? I don't
know much about Subarus, but I would like to be able to do this for
them before they leave. Thanks.
I understand, and having the option is, I suppose, a luxury.
I once heard that Volvo or someone introduced a system whereby the doors
locked after a certain speed was reached. I personally would like the
option of having the doors auto matically UNLOCK at speeds over - say -
50mph or so. If they lock again below that speed (with proper
hysteresis/delay) that would be OK. It's unlikely you are are gonna get
'jacked' at freeway speeds and, it is less likely the 'jaws of life'
would be needed in the event of a crash - saving potential life-sparing
minutes getting you outta the car. may only mean a few lives a year -
but, I'd like the option.

That's the way the locks on our 2002 Passat work. I think
they lock at about 5 MPH, but have never tried to figure out
the speed. It is definitely not when the car is started.
That would be a real pain.
