There is a down side to these...

The 05 Accord I sold before becoming a Rav owner suddenly had a problen where the doors would not lock using keyfob. It was determined the driver door lock actuator was worn out and it was not a cheap or easy fix.
With my Rav I am actually babying the door locks by going manual when its just me.

Less use = longer life
These will cause constant use

How would this be any different if it came programmed from the manufactured like most cars do? Or are you saying general usage causes wear and tear?

Just the opposite from my experience. I had a Nissan Quest that I bought used and the driver's door lock actuator (the one that got used the most) was the only one that worked perfectly. The others were flaky as hell, and I replaced them with generic actuators from Amazon.

Help RAV4World members help you by providing your car's operating location in your profile page. Climate can cause a RAV4 in Dallas Wisconsin to experience a different set of issues when compared to the same model in Dallas Texas.

Just saying the more it gets used the faster it fails...I understand wanting this option but it comes at a price. I have a 07...I don't want to hurry its untimely replacement.

There is a fine line to use it less and save it and don't use it and be inconvenienced. I could park the rav4 in the garage and not drive it ever - will be in perfect condition 10 years from now, but was the point of buying it then. Or I could use it and enjoy and do a replacement of ____ part when it fails.

Sure... My point of view is strictly cost savings down the road & a friendly suggestion to help those who may not consider the down side of it costing you in repairs later...That's all

mainly ALL new cars have the auto lock feature. if you are worried about wearing out parts then i guess you dont drive at all? when you see a bump in the road, do you stop driving and head back inorder to lessen the wear and tear on your suspension? Do you not use your headlights in order to make the battery last longer?

Do you ever sit in the car at idle for no reason?
