Why hasn't Ford integrated this common feature into their cars? Such a pain when switching between the Vettes and the EX

For me I wouldnt like that feature but You can just on the lock button on the door handle. Just as easy. Welcome to the forum!

As stated, just press the door lock sign on the door handle when you close the door. Pretty simple, not a huge deal

Whenever I think I forgot to lock it, I use the app to lock remotely. The app is dumb because it should have a graphic display saying locked or unlocked before you press and hold the button.Instead you have to lock it again even if it's locked.

Agree it’d be nice is it showed that.

My Ranger has Active Locking and I wish I had a nickle for everytime my keys have been locked inside. It's my aftermarket alarm and not a Ford thing but still.

Oh im not saying its perfect, theres a ton of features I wish it had. My BMW app states when there's windows down, if the car is locked/unlocked, can use phone as key, car locks itself as you posted, etc. Ford is way behind on tech wise.

At least they made a slight app improvement on sliding to turn on car instead of holding the button which didnt work great to begin with.
