Default Auto Lock doesn't seem to work when I leave the car.

I thought the F Sport automatically locks the car when I leave the vehicle.

Am I mistaken?

no you're not mistaken. i believe it's 20/30 seconds. you can go into vehicle settings and set it also.

I know about the "“Auto Relock Timer” - (Adjust the time elapsed before the automatic door lock function is activated if a door is not opened after being unlocked)" setting.

But where do we set the car to auto-lock when I leave the vehicle? (that would be a good safety precaution - but I didn't realize it was available on the GS)

I called a Lexus tech, you are right there is a Re-Lock timer just no Auto Lock feature.

Correct, if you unlock the car but do not open any door, it will relock in 30 seconds. There is no feature where it automatically locks when you walk away though.
