A Luxury SUV with Great Gas Mileage
By Peter M. on


2008 Lexus RX 400h 4dr SUV AWD (3.3L 6cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


This is an incredible car, granted it is expensive, but well worth every penny. I don't understand the complaints about gas mileage. With a little coaching from the onboard "consumption" feature in the navigation system I am routinely getting between 29 and 30 mpg. 24-26 is a high speed highway average, 28-30 around town, and 30-33 in stop and go driving.

Best Features

Hybrid engine with lots of zip and great mileage, steering and suspension makes this SUV feel like a sports car, luxury interior looks and feels great, seats that have the heating feature in both the seat and lower back. Automatic tailgate is a great convenience.

Worst Features

Heating and air conditioning should have a fan where you can set the fan speed yourself, although I'm getting used to the car making me very comfortable automatically without adjusting anything.
