Thinking of going green? Don't bother....
By tampabayjay on


2012 Lexus RX 450h 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


I recently traded my 2008 Lexus ES350 for a 2012 450RX Hybrid.
What a HUGE mistake!

The estimated mileage on the sticker is NO WHERE close to what the vehicle actually gets.

I paid a premium to get a Hybrid and I'm getting 22-23 average miles per gallon! My ES 350 got 32 MPG average.

Lexus has really disappointed me with this false interpretation of Hybrid performance.

I asked my dealer (Lexus of Tampa Bay) today what I could do.
They said to call Lexus.
What a joke.
I'm a repeat customer that has referred several buyers to this dealership and they blew me off?

I sincerely hope that taking the time to post this review will sufficiently warn others.

Lexus needs to tell the truth. I never would have imagined that I would have been so badly misled.
