    You step out and don't even look back and throw the door closed? Most people at least IME, get out of the car and close the door while facing at and / or at least looking at, the car.

    And this is why I don't design products for the masses... there's always a few people that do things differently that somehow screw up your plans. lol
    That's no "move", 7. I see people do that all the time. I always used to do it. Too old and slow now. Maybe you, too, eh?

    So, I'd ask this again, can anyone produce a use case for the above scenario? When the car does not lock itself if there is no key in range when the door closes? Why would the key be involved in auto-LOCKING the doors?

    Lol...nope. oldER...not slow yet. It's an easy enough move. And I'm old enough to know and have know a lot of people. Can't recall ever seeing someone do that. I'm going to be watching people now, though! LOL
    Someone back me up here?

    Use case: cleaning my car. I don't want the doors to lock every time I close a door.

    So it won't lock when I'm cleaning my car.

    The real question is: why shouldn't it lock automatically after, say, 30 seconds if there is no key present. It does so even if the key is present after 30 seconds.

    Because the signal the key fob/transponder is sending to the CX-5. If not in range, CX-5 won't auto lock. Pure and simple

    Ok, I get the technicalities, I'm electronic engineer by education. I'm jus wonder why. Why the signal from the key is necessary to make a lock decision?

    So it won't lock when I'm cleaning my car.
    Once you are by the rear door, it will lock regardless. Or by the hood, and so on. Better to leave the key inside.

    Because if there is no signal to recognise the valid key fob/transponder then the vehicle will not know to lock be it auto-lock or pressing a button on doors/tailgate and also for unlocking.

    Well, in this case if the vehicle doesn't know what to do and there's nobody around to help, would it not be more logical to lock a hell out of everything, sit tight and pretend you're not a car at all?

    Because then people will complain it locks straight away when say you've shut the front door and you are going to go to the back door to get your child out and similar scenarios. Could cause unknown panic to parents, children etc.

    This is the compromise solution.

    It works as intended. Just people don't appear to know how to use the function perhaps....

    If it is all too hard, just turn off the functionality via MZD connect.

    Problem/issue solved.

    It locks as soon as you get to rear door anyway, so this scenario is not applicable. If you have to do your business in the rear seat frequently, the existing design doesn't work anyway.
    Besides, in this case you still have your key present, don't you?
    So, anything else?

    No it doesn't. I've closed the rear tailgate, stepped away slightly (I don't "hug" the CX-5 so as to negate arming), it arms then I've gone to the drivers door and got in and the second beep/chirp for locking hasn't kicked in.

    Agree it doesn't. Got home today, exited the driver's side, walked around to the passenger rear door talking to my son in the back seat. It didn't lock for 30 seconds.
