Failing door lock actuators

Around a year and a half ago, my passenger-side front door lock actuator failed and it was replaced under warranty. Last week, my driver-side rear door lock started exhibiting the same symptoms and has since died. I made an appointment to bring the car into the dealership for repair for next week.

Well - today, I saw that my passenger-side rear door lock has also stopped working as well. That's failure of three out of the four door lock actuators in under three years.

Is this a common thing on the Gen 2s or am I just lucky?

That's what I guessed will happen eventually since the doors keep locking/unlocking by auto lock feature. It there a way to disable auto lock/unlock with the gear selector? I didn't see anything in GDS2.
Should be right in the in-dash Vehicle Personalization. It's called "Auto Door Unlock". (I found it on page 145 of the 2017 manual.) You can also customize most of the unlock functions to be confined to the driver door first, to save the passenger and rear doors from the wear and tear unless you press the thing a SECOND time.
