I can lock my doors but I can't lock the windows (the passenger and rear windows). People in the passenger seat and back seats can still open my windows.

Did you press the rear window safety switch by the drivers window controls, as per page 42 of the online owners manual ?

If so, did you test it using the rear window switches ? The driver ones will still work

If its on multiple cars then it sounds like a common software glitch

Be sure to tell your service department you have read about others with the same problem.
They have a special reporting channel to report faults in new models and need to report it.
