Terrible gas mileage, no back seat room

2004 Lexus IS 300 E-Shift 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
Review
Surprisingly little room for a luxury car. My wife's 2010 Insight had more room. We bought this hoping that the gas mileage would be better than rated, as I had heard some owners were getting 30mpg highway. We did not find that to be the case. Even without the 'PWR' button on, we were only getting ~22mpg highway on premium. Simply unacceptable for such a small car. Also the dash on these has a chronic melting issue on the passenger side airbag cover. Interior really does not hold up well over time. My car was an 04 but felt more like it was 15-20 years old. Got rid of it in less than 6 months and gladly took a loss on the sale. Maintenance at Lexus dealerships is expensive, take it to Toyota
Favorite Features
Smooth ride and engine. Transmission shifts like butter as long as it has fresh fluid
Suggested Improvements
Gas mileage. Very little space in the back for carseats or kids.
