I bought my RX 400h after much research and thought. Lexus name plate puts some back (you bought a Lexus??) but the hybrid part really perks up ears. I even got a statement "you never seemed like the hybrid type!" Mileage is good, fun to watch the gauge, wish it had backup alarm, camera is good. Prev issues have been addressed: nav is outstanding (not grainy), SAT is now available, discrete word Hybrid on side says enough. Power is amazing when you need it. Friends all want a ride, never had that in any other car. Takes a bit of getting used to wind down at stops, and lack of motor noise at start up, but not a problem. A/C keeps going even with gas motor off. Great car.
Hybrid is smooth in transition. Hardly notice gas starting or stopping. Quiet ride and silent at stop lights when gas engine is off. Electric rear door is great, open it as I approach with groceries, closes without effort. Great looks, great buzz from friends.
An iPod direct attachment. PLEASE make A/C seats available!
