That is good to know, as it has been an issue for me. LM22s wear out so fast that I switched for a few years to all-seasons.

Engine in a non-hybrid RX does not shut off, nor features the annoying start-stop feature. To my knowledge, Toyota has not pursued cylinder deactivation for their motors either.

Most SUVs are body on frame instead of unibody construction. Also have real 4x4 instead of part-time AWD engagement not suitable for off-roading.
Crossover to a Car is the same as SUV to a Truck.

You can use the door handle just fine. Smart key needs a dialog to be established in order for the re-transmit to work. Just capturing the signal is useless.
