Yet they pronounce LOOT as lot. Interesting.

You mean with the English schwa (Ə) sound? That is interesting! Spanish speakers have a very difficult time with that sound. Just ask a native Spanish speaker to say comfortable or fountain. It's really hard for them.

On the other hand, it took me a long time to say estacionamiento and ingeniería trippingly upon the tongue with no hesitation. It helps to smile when you speak Spanish.

UPDATE: Ooops! As I was drenching myself in the very warm and turbulent waters of Playa Madera (I love Zihua!), I was thinking that lot doesn't use the schwa. Lot uses the "ah" sound. The dictionaries use the symbol "ä." My apologies.
