Serenity in the Suburbs

Vehicle2010 Lexus HS 250h Premium 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
ReviewWhen we felt we deserved a lot more bells and whistles and were watching the fuel prices start the most recent climb we researched the available Luxury Hybrids. Kathy wanted a higher seating position than the '99 Solara, BlueTooth/Nav/Heated Seats and she found it all. My working for a Lexus store didn't stop her from looking at the Prius, Altima and Lincoln Hybrids but she determined that the Premium HS suited her best. Now that she regularly exceeds the posted 35 MPG by 2 or 3 it confirmed her decision. A high point of her day is getting asked for a ride by various co-workers and showing off the cooled seats and verbal commands. That the dealer washes it every week is an added bonus!
Best FeaturesExceeding the 35 posted MPG by a couple Verbal commands for nearly everything Separate tone settings for iPod & XM Ventilated seats, 3 position memory seat Strong performance when desired Cool look with Matador Red and "18 Alloys Keyless fob, won't slip and fall in snow while fumbling with packages and keys Memory seat knows which driver is entering Destination Assist is even easier than the verbal command system Two free service visits paid by Lexus Pre-open the windows/sunroof on hot day E-Mail destinations to car, no need to type them in while parked Wonderfully quiet and comfortable Warms up incredibly fast in sub zero weather
Worst FeaturesRemote start cuts off when door is opened Remote range is ridiculously short, '40? Standard Lexus/Toyota problem that the cigarette lighter turns off with the key, can not charge phones, iPods when car is off
