400,000 Miles and still running smooth

2006 Lexus RX 400h 4dr SUV AWD (3.3L 6cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


403,069 Miles (YES you read it right 400k+)and still feels smooth/reliable/ No major issues. This is my Second Toyota/Lexus vehicle. I bought this vehicle brand new (8 miles) five years ago and use it as my primary work vehicle (commute from Chicago to Atlanta) every week. I maintained it very good, (regular service, oil change, tries everything) but still my cost of maintenance was far less compared to any other vehicles like BMW/Mercedes (I owned both earlier and had ton of issues) I changed tires 8 times till date (every 50k miles). I am planning to trade in for 2012 RX450h (yes, I will make of my current vehicle till its hit 500,000 miles - Half million, I am very confident it will g

This is quite impressive c4neo. Thank you for sharing this info with us. I am planning to buy RX 400h. What average mpg are you getting on your RX?

This comment gives me lots of hope for living with my 2006 Lexus RX 400h for a long time. I also bought my car new and had no problem with it except for the cruise control stick which needed to be replaced last year at a cost of $350. I keep looking at new vehicles and I cann't find one that feels better than my 6 year old Lexus 400h. I intend to keep driving it for a very long time but I do not think I will ever match the more than 400,000 miles on this gentleman car.
