Poorly Built
By GKC on


2007 Lexus RX 400h 4dr SUV AWD (3.3L 6cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


You should think twice before buying this vehicle. I am only 5'6" and when delivered, the front seats of my 400h would not go back far enough and had to be unbolted and moved, at a $500 expense to me. Also my head is against the roof with the seat all the way down.The front seat belts are too short and extensions have to be used which compromise safety. The car lunges forward, usually in park, when it switches from electric to gas engine. Gas use runs 20 mpg in town and 17 mpg on the road. It has been back to the dealer and they say there is nothing wrong with the vehicle.

Something is wrong with this car in particular, I am 6' and have absolutely no problem at all with the seat nor the seat belt, the gas mileage average is 24 taking into consideration that sometimes I push the pedal to full thrust.
