2009 Hyundai Genesis V6: Auto door locks

October 26, 2009

I had our long-term 2009 Hyundai Genesis V6 over the weekend and kept noticing that the doors were unlocked while I was driving.

I like having the doors lock automatically for three reasons:
1. I usually forget to lock them myself
2. I'm used to having the car do it for me since most new vehicles have this feature
3. I don't care for uninvited guests in my vehicle

C'mon Hyundai -- how could you leave this feature out?

It turns out I should never have doubted our Genesis.

Of course the Genesis can do that -- it can take of most of your comfort and convenience needs.
As you can see from the Info screen, you can have the doors lock when the shift lever is moved out of Park, or when the vehicle exceeds 12.5 mph.

Apparently, someone had turned off the auto door locking feature (perhaps the same person who previously turned off the parking sonar?)

The bottom pic shows the numerous features that the driver can customize, including if there is a signal tone when you lock/unlock the car.

Customizing these features is pretty convenient, and easier to exectute than on some other vehicles. And you don't have to visit the dealer to make adjustments like some brands require.

The Genesis has pleasantly surprised me yet again.
