    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    The base model does not have interaction with touchscreen to disable speed activated door locks. I find them annoying. I took it to the dealer ask if they could plug into their diagnostics to disable and the answer was negative. Anyone know different? Other than that, I am extremely pleased...
