The starter battery dies in cold weather on a regular basis and also will die if the vehicle has not been driven for a week or so.
Do yourself a favor and purchase a chargeable self-battery jumper, which will save you a lot of time waiting for AAA.
I bought the hybrid to get better fuel economy.
I haven't seen the fuel economy of the Rx400h go above 26.
The features and gadgets are simple and easy to use, and the seats are super comfortable.
Seats are comfortable.
Gadgets are simple.
Decent fuel economy.
I love the power rear-door mechanism and the button on the hatch door to close the door is easy to reach, even for little petite me.
There's pretty good room in the cargo area and the back seats fold flat.
Fuel economy is not what I expected or was hoping for.
The starter battery drove me crazy.
The starter battery dies easily in cold weather.
It also dies when the vehicle has not been driven for a week or so.
Don't bother waiting for AAA:
buy yourself a self-jumper.
