Already did the disable as soon as I learned about the customisable settings. And my concern isn't so much with the guys who have the jaws of life to help out, but more the average joe - my bf was once witness to an overturned car accident where the vehicle had begun smoking and the occupant seemingly unable to get out. Most everyone stood around gawking, but he went and opened the door to get her out, which would have been considerably more challenging had her doors been locked.The auto lock can be disabled. You want the doors locked when driving in case of an accident to keep the door closed and trust me any first responder has ways to open the door if they need to to rescue you.
I guess my thinking is that if i'm hitting something hard enough to cause the doors to be a factor in injury, I'm not convinced that the lock is going to be of that much difference either way. Are there commonly incidents reported that have caused people to be saying stuff like " if only her doors were locked she'd have been saved"? I've just never heard that mentioned as a safety consideration beyond keeping scary people from jumping in your car to hijack it in a sketchy neighborhood...
