    I'll try staying there as the hatch closes and see if that makes a difference.
    Nope, it won't.

    When I close the driver's door and have the fob on me (outside of the car), I get an initial Beep. When I walk away, it Beeps a couple of times to let me know that it locked. I believe the lights flash as well when it locks...I think.
    Beeps once when the doors are all closed. Beeps once when it locks. Beeps twice when it unlocks.

    Really???

    I just tried reading the manual to see if mention was made of it, but the section on keys & door locks is a mind-numbing 26 pages full of options and variations on a beep-theme.

    So what if I get out of the car without opening the hatch from within, close the driver's door, then open the hatch from the hatch and not from the inside button? Do you know if the car will lock after I close the hatch under that scenario?

    If you have would take the time from posting and read the manual on locks and keys you would find that it all depends on what groceries you are unloading prior to the hatch closing. It is on one of the pages between 1-26 toward the bottom just above the last sentence. I read it the other night when I was trying to fall asleep. If I have another restless night after reading the Forum, I will try and locate the actual page. Are the groceries you are removing before closing the hatch organic? Process of elimination will set you free to close the doors with your FOB. Do not give up hope.

    THERE IS A BUTTON ABOVE THE REAR LICENSE PLATE TO OPEN THE HATCH AND THERE IS A "SECRET" BUTTON TO THE RIGHT OF YOUR LICENSE PLATE ON THE HATCH THAT WILL LOCK ALL THE DOORS. WATCH THE VIDEO!!!!

    The walk away lock is sensitive. If you are 3-4 feet or more away from the car when the last door closes it won't activate the auto lock. You can try it yourself to see the range by having the drivers door open and standing back away from the car but just close enough for you to give the door a push to shut it with your outstretched arm. You'll be far enough away the auto lock won't engage.

    The car will auto lock in the situation you described above but only if you stand next to the back of the car and wait for the hatch to fully close. Then you'll hear the single beep, and then the second beep when you walk away. If you press the hatch button to close it and start to walk away you will be out of range by the time the hatch gets fully latched so it won't work.

    Seminole you are absolutely right. I just tried shutting the door standing as far away as I could and sure enough...didn't lock. Thanks much.

    One thing I'm not clear on and didn't find in the manual. My key has an "off" button in addition to "lock", "unlock" and "lift gate". Does that turn off the walk away locking feature?

    The difference is not with the models, it's with my process.

    I open the hatch using the dash button. Then I get out, shut the driver's door, remove my stuff from the already-opened hatch, then close it.

    Had I followed your process, my CX-5 would have behaved just as your CX-9 does.

    Do you mean to say that opening the hatch using the dash button changes the way the auto-lock works? I just went out and tested your process, and auto-lock still works.

    I apologize if I'm misunderstanding something.

    +1 this happens to me once in awhile, if I walk out of range (maybe like 5 feet from car) and a passenger closes the door after I'm out of range, the doors won't lock automatically.
