2007 Lexus RX 400h
There are 9 user reviews for the Front Wheel Drive trim shown below
- GPS, Headlights that turn, Rear camera, and Hybrid technology are great.
- Braking takes some minor getting use to. But overall car is great.
There are many things to like about the RX400h hybrid. Better fuel Economy, smooth quite ride, many luxury features, heated seats, 6 disk CD player, Driver preset seating, multi point adjustable seats, elecric lumbar support for driver and passenger, GPS system, Headlights that turn into the turn, fog lights, sensors on the wipers, rear window wiper, large glove compartment, adjustable middle console, bucket seats, rear camera and more.
Overall this is a luxury car that is a huge step up from my old 99 Camry XLE. The Hybrid price is steep but worth it if you own the car. I own cars for 8-9 years so I will get the money back in gas costs, which will only go up....read morehide

- Great looks, outstanding fit and finish, quiet, nice smooth ride
- the nav system is not intuitive and requires the use of the manual
I'm a "car man" and buy a new car at least once a year. My wife was driving a Infiniti G35 and decided to try a "green" ride. So we traded the sportscar, which I thought was a mistake, on a little SUV and its been a pleasant surprise.
We currently own a 2006 BMW 5501, 1956 Porchse Speedster, 1974 Landcruiser, and 2007 Tahoe Z71; when it comes time to get on the rode we seem to always take the Lexus. For a small SUV its roomy, quiet, smooth and easy to drive. We might actually hold on to this one for a while....read morehide

- nice looking, smooth ride
- Sub-Par Gas Mileage
I bought the 06 RX400h thinking it would get 31 mpg in the city and 27 on the highway. Well this is what the car was rated at. After 15k now I avg. 23.5-25 MPG. **ALWAYS** I do primarily city driving so I am surprised the numbers are not higher. Had I known this car would not save that much gas mileage over the regular vehicle I would not have purchased.
Also, been fairly disappointed with my local service on this vehicle. Maybe I didn't know what to expect because this is a luxury brand, I thought I would be treated like a King but no it's not like that. I found a problem with the brakes , where the car would lunge forward when initially braking. Reported it to Lexus who claimed they couldn't do anything because whenever I brought the car in it wasn't able to duplicate on test ride. Well it was a very intermittent but annoying thing. I had to live with it for like 4000+ miles until finally lexus came out with a "service bulletin" for the fix. Apparently, lots of others reported same problem and they eventually fixed it. My lexus service shop treated me like a i was crazy and every time I brought it in they wouldn't do anything to fix it. I eventually got lucky on the service bulletin as they never acknowledged there as a problem with the braking system....read morehide

- style, power, leather seating, room, luxury
- new model brakes kinda rough, but its broken in now and feels great.
this car is my first purchase, and i am fully satisfied with this purchase. i have about 800 miles on the car right now, and on the 15 gallon tank, im getting about 300 miles. i havent really broken the car fully in, and it has been hot in los angeles, so i am using the air conditioner, so im not getting full value for miles right now.
the ride is great though. i love the car overall....read morehide

- Comfort level, looks, handling, low noise, fit and finish, unique features
- Doesn't drive exclusively on electric, sound system a bit weak
Overall, it has been a great car over our first month of ownership. Wish it got a little better mileage in city driving, but this is a very low impact (environmental) SUV that gives up very little in creature comforts in doing so.

- I own this vehicle, stylish, good acceleration
- Max. MPG 26.2 at 15k miles , 4x4 drive a bit stiff
Service costs at dealership 3-4x higher than at fast lube shops
Have to take in every 5k or dash alert very bothersome
Borrowed a 2 wheel drive model while being serviced, It handles much easier than the 4x4
Bought from Nalley Lexus at Marietta, Ga. They Stink................
MPG is overstated
Navigation system too difficult
That's my 2 minutes..........................read morehide

- smooth, economical, quick off the line
- none yet
After driving 15k, I believe it's the best luxury hybrid on the market. Golf clubs fit perfectly in the rear. GPS is great. Smooth and never has any problems. Almost seems to float on the highway.

- comfortable; luxury features; lexus quality
- Mileage is not close to epa estimate...more like 25 not 35...
Mileage rating is overblown by EPA and LEXUS...common concern of
otherwise, an excellent car

- The RX400h has a great ride and lots of power!
- Your fuel economy will decrease slightly in cold weather
I've had the Lexus RX400h since mid-July 2006. It's a great trip car. I have to drive almost 20 miles to work, most of it freeway, so I can acheive very good mileage, usually around 27-29 mpg. It decreases slightly in cold weather, like down to 25-27 mpg. I was getting about 22 mpg (combined) on the RX330 that I traded in for the hybrid, so if I can do 27 mpg (5mpg more than the RX 330) or better, I am happy. I highly recommend the Navigation system, it really helps me out. And the Bluetooth phone capability keeps me completely "hands free" - I never talk on my handset in the car any more, I don't have to. The "reverse" camera (which helps you see things behind you as you back up) is also very helpful....read morehide
