Excellent Vehicle
By ramskifast on


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


I bought this vehicle with 64K miles on it.
Now I have 102K.
My worse tank was 24mpg and the best was 29.25mpg.
I seem to average between 25 and 27.50 with mixed driving. High speed highway (75-84) is only around 22.
When I get the higher mileage it's usually when most of the driving is at lower speeds as you would expect.
I noticed a review of this vehicle by someone stating poor mileage. There was either something wrong with the vehicle or it was due to poor driving habits.
Way too many people blast up to the light and hit the brakes.
Then they hit the gas hard taking off.
If you use softer driving habits you will get 26-28.
You have to be thinking hybrid.
Smart drivers will see the good mileage.
Navigation works well with two exceptions. First is it's incredibly dumb that a passenger can not program the vehicle while the car is in motion. Second is the warning notice which displays for 5 or 6 seconds everytime you hit the NAV button. There should be a way to stop it from doing that.
