I traded an 06 Acura RL which I adored but got in the low 20's mpgs and was looking for a good size tech laden high mileage car.
I never fancied myself a "Lexus" guy but after test driving it, felt it had excellent "non Lexus" driving characteristics and incredible mileage for a 3700 pound luxo/sport (albeit for a hybrid) car.
And with the December to Remember cash incentives from mother Lexus, the price became "reasonable."
Have had the car since Jan 3 and have 4500 miles on it and am consistently getting high 36 mpg's.
And with gas up $0.60 cents since January its been a big help!
Also have two Prius's and this HS is no Prius!
Prius is great but no comparison for a long drive.
Love the tech package toys; front camera, head up display, radar cruise control, lane keep assist!
But got it for the mileage and am very pleased that it has delivered what it said it would and even a little better.
Like that its a little smaller than the RL too, easier to park.
Wish it: were all wheel drive (but would probably lose mpg's); had a rear sunshade and swivel headlights (they are an option but no dealer seems to order their inventory with them).
Seems to be a Toyota/Lexus thing but cant enter information (nav, settings or even access the address book etc) while moving.
Acura trusted you.
Wish it was one of the custom settings you could change.
