|ATVRobert||I have a Rapido 8086DF-2019, it does not have auto lock on the doors|
|rayc||On the coachbuilt models autoclose is a standard function of the cab. Perhaps as a cost cutting exercise Rapido do not enable it on their A class 8*** series but do on the more expensive 9*** series?|
All the doors in my Vectra Estate (2005) autolock as soon as I pull away and remain locked until I remove the ignition key, unless I press a release switch on either front door.
Some areas we drive through in the motor home remind me to press the door lock but this only operates the cab doors; our hab door is manual but we usually remember to lock it before setting off.
Carrying one of those hammers is a great idea, Andy, I'll have a search and buy one for each of our family vehicles.

Plus of course most vehicles now have electric windows so, in the event of the battery being smashed in a crash, you cannot operate them!!
|kabundi||My 2014MY Rapido 7065FF also auto locks the doors just after you set off|
Hi, I have the new 7096F
The doors auto lock just after setting off.
Itís a good safety feature as previously mentioned, doors cannot be opened when stopping at traffic lights etc.
|Pudsey_Bear||I thought the auto door locking was introduced to stop doors bursting open in a collision, keeping the occupants inside the vehicle.|
I have a 9083 DF 2008 and the autoclose work perfectly when I reached for about 20 km/h.
The thing about 12mph is that once you drive away and reach 12mph, the doors lock & STAY locked if you stop at say traffic lights, to prevent just as you say anyone getting in, especially through the Hab door, they can of course be opened anytime from inside
