Which ECU was it? There are dozens in this vehicle. I wonder if those symptoms could have been related to a dying 12V battery.

Definitely no distance to empty feature on the 400h. You'll have to use your fuel gauge and get used to how many miles you can go on a tank.

Since the 400h does not have the "smart" key that communicates to the door locks when you approach the car, I highly doubt this theory.

Mine is that way - pretty sure it's normal. It's consistent on level ground. It's not going to brake for you on steep downhill roads.
