Am I safe in my car with doors locked if someone tries to open the door?

Asked by Jul 11, 2013 at 12:14 PM about the 2013 Honda Accord EX-L w/ Nav

Question type: General

Just got a 2013 Honda Accord.  They key fob when I'm in range will let me open the door
by putting my hand behind the door handle.  What prevents someone from opening the
door when I'm in the car with doors locked?  (Imagining a scary scene where I jump in my
car and lock the doors and the villan just opens the door and kills me).  Thanks for your
help!

Proximity key. It has to do with you being in the driver's seat. Occupied. Noboby can open the door with you in the car and doors locked, like my Corolla is idiot proof about locking keys in the car....the doors will not lock with the drivers seat unoccupied....and vice versa....same principal, relax, you are safe.
