Disappointed mpg
By gored on


2010 Lexus RX 450h 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


I am very disappointed in our fuel economy. After 8500 miles we average 25.5 mpg. Suburban/rural Ohio mom running a 5 teen family. No special driving of any sort. Quite a bit different from the 29 combined mpg we were represented with. Not worth it.

Best Features

built in hard drive

Worst Features

Heated steering wheel and rear seat heaters and better AUTO climate control. I am always having to fiddle with it.

Don't blame the car failing. It's your foot that's failing. 30mpg is EASILY attainable. If you plan on doing it without making the people behind you a little upset though after the light turns green while you put-put to 65mph, then you're expecting too much. You have to drive it SUPER, SUPER easy on the throttle.
