With 2 kids, having auto unlock is probably the 1 thing I miss the most.
I have a base sport with manual everything.
It was recently at the dealer for the resonating speaker fix and a strange rotational noise that has since gone away, possibly dust boot.
I had a Sport S as a loaner, leather steering wheel, big UConnect screen, pretty sure it had a better all around stereo, auto mirrors, windows and locks. All really nice stuff. But, the auto locks were by far my most used feature.

Any feature you can't live without? Or at least really makes your life easier?

There is a thread here that ask which option you wish you would have gotten on your new Jeep. The proximity locks got the most votes, hands down. I was going to order my new Jeep as I couldn't find one with other options that were a must have for me. I finally found one with everything I wanted plus the locks, and made the deal. I'm so glad it has the proximity locks, because I know now that I would have hated myself for not ordering them. Handy things they are.

I didn't think you could get proximity locks on the Sport S.

I started looking at the base and could have lived with the roll up windows and some of the other difference.
The remote locks though was a major factor in going with the Sport S over the Base for us.
It would have been a bigger factor for sure if I was considering the 4 door with kids.

I do wish the proximity locks was an option or included though.

Proximity locks are fantastic. The company that I work for designs and manufactures what we call smart handles. They are used on MANY Toyota’s. My Toyota Highlander has them. So when I went to order my Jeep it was the first option selected.

Yup, proximity locks are the one thing I miss from my Edge.

I thought I could live without Power Windows and Locks. The Windows I haven't missed. But the Power Locks is why I installed my power locks on my sport. I did a write-up here if you check the DIY section or check my blog in my signature.
