- very quiet and comfortable ride
- Gas mileage is POOR 17.5 mpg. combined city and hwy, brakes lunge, quirky . . .
The Hybrid is not as advertised. Gas mileage is not even close to sticker, 33 City/28 Hwy. We get 17.5 to 18.2 combined and only 4,000 miles on the car. The hybred is still quirky. When in reverse backing out of the garage the gas engine will "kick" in with such authority you think you just ran over the dog. Lexus hasn't been able to me why the engine needs to charge the batteries when in "reverse". The brakes lunge. Lexus says that normal function. The poor gas mileage. Lexus says that normal function. The terrible voice quality of the "hands free" cell phone (both sides complain). Lexus says "thats normal function" I could go on but why bore you. It is not ready for prime time and it doesn't live up to normal Lexus quality. If your in L.A. call me I'll let you drive it aand decide. Lexus hides from owners of the hybrid. They won't answer a letter asking questions about the hybrid. I guess they are waiting for the Lexus corporate attorney's to change and approve a "boiler plate" letter before Lexus will send an answer.
