Save wear and tear on the actuators

And it's a PIA when dropping someone off, to have to try and find that damn unlit door unlock button in the dark :x



Totally agree. My daughter is also learning to drive, so when she practices parellel parking, I can open the door to show her the distance from the curb. Also added some convex mirrors.

Why is it counted as "safety feature"? Where I live, there has been zero "carjacking on the go" for years.

The doors have to be unlocked before they will open. The automatic locking prevents the door from being opened while the car is moving. It is a safety feature to prevent passengers from opening the door and falling out at speed, not to prevent access from the outside while moving.

Haha. Doors can still be opened with one pull. Even if locked. So no. Not that :D
If we are talking about children, one should use child lock anyway as rear passengers
can unlock the door if central lock is locked.

Not here. That is one reason why you see so many complaints about the unlock button with no light. One pull does not unlock and open the door. The door has to be unlocked before the handle will engage the mechanism to open it. And yes, child locks should always be engaged on the doors when transporting children.

Anyway, I see no additional safety with adults.

Adults, or anyone old enough to understand and work the lock, can easily over-ride the safety feature. It just keeps the doors from being accidentally opened while the vehicle is moving (or intentionally opened by someone not thinking rationally).
