Default New Honda owner

Hello all,

First day as a new Honda owner. Got a (new) 2007 Accord EX for my
daughter yesterday, and we are quite happy with it. Just a really well
built car.

One feature I'm surprised to not see is the "auto-door-lock" function.
This is where all the doors lock as the vehicle reaches a certain speed
(15-20 mph) after the doors have been opened. I'm used to it on all my
Dodge vehicles, and didn't even think to ask about it on this one. Am I
missing something, or is this feature really not here?

Anyway, I also got the 8 year, 100K mile, 0 deductible warranty on it, so
am looking forward to many years of trouble-free operation. Glad to be a
Honda owner!

If you find it, let me know but I don't think it's there. I broke with
tradition<g> and actually looked through the manual and was unable to
find that feature for my 2006 Accord.

You're right about one thing, though. Great cars!

I would not have purchased my 2004 Accord EX-L if it had this
feature. What purpose does it serve? If you need your doors locked,
hit the button right before you put on your seatbelt.

Automatically locking doors ranks right up there with DRL's. I won't
buy a car with these pseudo-safety features.

As an aside, yes, wear my seatbelt (always have and always will) and
no, i do not support a seat belt law.

As far as I know, that is a American-mfr-only feature. Never encountered it
on any Japanese cars. Personally, I find it irritating and useless. I
would spend some time researching how to disable it if it showed up on any
of my cars.

My '00 Toyota Avalon XLS had it and it was a real PIA.

On stopping, the driver's door could be opened but before any passenger door
could open, they (or the driver) had to hit the unlock button.

Did you think to look in the owner's manual?

It is there, but you have to set it...

Just a clarification, in case I was wrong ;-), I have an 06 Civic Si, and
this feature is, indeed, available on the civic line by following a simple
procedure with the ignition and the door lock switch. It is possible that
it isn't there for an Accord, but that would seem very odd to me...

Can't seem to find it online, I'll try to remember to check it next
time I'm in the car. Not that I want it, but I'm curious. Anybody
want to buy my unused cruise control?

I THOUGHT I'd scoured the 2006 Accord owner's manual front to back for
it and never found it. I'll try again as I'm one of those (perhaps in
the minority) that likes that feature. Then again, as you say, it may
only be on the Civic line. Oh well. Thanks!
