2008 Lexus RX Hybrid
There are 6 user reviews for the 400h FWD trim shown below
- Averaging 28.4 on every tank! Love the gas mileage & nav system & back up camera.
I actually have a 2009 400h, which I bought to replace my 2004 Lexus 330, which I loved. I am even happier with my new hybrid.

- Mediocre full economy, compared to what I expected. Frustrating to say the least.
- Ride is exactly what I expected, having had an RX300 before. Amenity changes have been huge tho!
A Lexus owner for years, I bought one of the first 400h available in Chicago, having preordered it almost 2 years in advance. I have been really happy with it, outside of the issues with mileage -- not at all what I expected or had hoped for, and I find voice commands to be a challenge as well, they are much better in my husband's BMW. Wind noise is odd yes, I have found you need to keep a balance between window openings and that will be fixed. Other than that, I would buy this car again, it is a perfect city SUV, nimble, quick, and quietly elegant....read morehide

- Amazing fuel economy (27.7 to 30.4 mpg), great acceleration, comfortable, great-looking
- Bluetooth, stereo system, cornering
The Lexus RX 400h is an amazing vehicle. Its classy looks and high performance are immediate draws. Surprising acceleration and fantastic fuel economy are the main draws, while added side benefits like rearview camera, rotating headlights, headlight washers, lighted door sills, etc. are great bonuses. There is also an engine brake that accelerates your battery charge and decreases brake usage. The suspension in this SUV mirrors that of a luxury car and offers the smoothest ride I have encountered so far.
The Bluetooth on the car is nice to have, but I will often drop calls when call waiting is activated (e.g. on the phone with one person, another calls, both calls are terminated simultaneously). The stereo itself is likely more than any person would need, but comes across unimpressive to ardent music enthusists. More speakers, deeper sound and better satellite radio options would help this complaint (note: I do not have the Mark Levinson audio system) Aside from that the car weighs nearly 2.5 tons (gross weight), so it does not handle like my G35 when cornering at higher speeds!
BEWARE: Upkeep on this vehicle (like most luxury vehicles) is very pricey at the dealer. Consider this when preparing your vehicle comparison log.
I would be more than happy to re-purchase this vehicle if given the opportunity to turn back time. Its benefits vastly outweigh its nitpicky improvement opportunities. I look forward to future purchases of Lexus RXs when the time is appropriate for a new vehicle....read morehide

- Great Navigation System
I purchased my Lexus last year and I absolutely love everything about it. My navigation system tells me everything from when to change the oil, where I going and when I'm using fuel or battery, the cell phone is complatible, making it hads free. I wouldn't have anything else. Comfort is top of the line and the DVD system keeps the kids happy while traveling. The only negative is the XM Radio, when it is installed you have to have the extra antenna it should come standard on all Lexus vehicles....read morehide

- Great Fuel Economy if you don't have a heavy foot. I average 28mpg to 29mpg.
- Ride is very smooth. The car is very quiet.
I got my brand new Lexus Rx400h 2wd with nav for 42K after haggling like a madwoman. Believe me it was very stressful to deal with car dealers. You just have to be persistant.
I drove from LA to San Jose and I still had some gaz left by the time I got into San Jose.
The performance is quite good, the gaz mileage is excellent for an SUV as long as you don't have a heavy foot on the accelerator.
The navigational system took me some time to get use to. But it is great.The back up camera is simply awesome.
My only critics are the blindspot of the car.
Lexus Rx400h has a lot of class!
You will not be dissapointed....read morehide
