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


Didn't expect to like it as I really wanted an LX or GX but my wife fell in love with it. And now I have too. The hybrid is very peppy with the electric assist. Absolutely elegant inside and well built. Larger than expected inside with lots of nice touches - adjustable console and rear seats that slide.

Best Features

Elegant inside. Dual seat adjustments work great. We have a steep driveway and it made it down in "B" with no problem - better than my 4WD Pathfinder.

Worst Features

Soft in cornering and would love a louder warning if backing up with hatch open. Also audible warning if getting close to an empty tank as they warn you not to run out of gas with a hybrid.
