I can't find any mention of this in the 2012 manual.
But I did discover how to put my remote unlock into central unlock mode so pressing the unlock button the first time unlocks all the doors instead of just the drivers door.
To see a larger version, right click and select open in new tab.

Well seeing not to many people are aware of this feature and seeing it was in a totally safe place to leave keys in floorboard UNATTENDED, I'm sure its easier said than done. (The many methods of hiding key outside of vehicle) especially after someone already played the role of DA and brought to peoples attention.
If your unaware of a specific feature it doesn't cross your mind your being a DA.
My Soul I can unlock with remote wait 30 seconds and they'll automatically lock. Try it.
Grabbing a cup of coffee with the keys in the ignition and engine running it won't lock automatically (but not a bright thing to do), also without engine running it won't lock automatically.
Not a problem, just learn to use it properly.
My Soul does lock when I park it after driving it home. I pull into the garage and put it in park, shut it off and the doors are unlocked. I remove the key from the ignition,get out, shut the door leaving the doors unlocked. I come out sometime later, and the car is all locked up.
Nice... no more worrying if I forgot to lock my car.
i live in a neighborhood where i never lock the doors on my 07 fj cruiser. i just pull into driveway toss keys under the seat and close the doors. if i do this on my wifes 2012 exclaim the car will lock itself?
lol, are you serious.....
you mean, you deliberately leave your car keys in the car... in a deliberately unlocked car...?
living in a PRESENTLY 'safe' neighborhood doesnt give one the excuse to be careless...
long island, eh? im going to put up a local bulletin and send all of the Houston thugs your way... hope you dont mind lol

On saturday 13/04/2013 i took my 2013 kia soul into the kia dealer in doncaster to have the auto locking feature turned off but on this model it cant be done so i just have to try and rember when i pull up to pick anyone up i have to press the button on drivers door
I also LOVE the auto lock and auto unlock. I love getting out and the back hatch is already unlocked. Perfect!
