2008 Lexus RX Hybrid User Reviews
400h AWD shown
- $20,863 - $21,670
- No trim specified for this review
- Fuel economy is pretty good (w/Michelin Energy MX tires): 28mpg+ in town; 26mpg avg.
- Control knobs for seat heaters could be bigger. No other cons.
2008 RX 400h is an improvement from our 2006 model which had 37K miles. The RX usually comes with Goodyear RSA tires, which are sporty, noisey and somewhat hard. Negotiated for Michelin Energy MX tires - these improve the ride, quietness, mpg by as much as 12%(!) while using 87 octane, and wear better by 50% more.
Wood trim appointments add to a luxurious interior. The GPS and computer have also been upgraded in 2008 for better navigation accuracy. General usage is more intuitive.
Power is adequate and passing capability is excellent. Some engine whine when accelerating (b/c of the continuously variable transmission), but otherwise very quiet.
Overall, the 2008 RX 400h AWD is an excellent vehicle that is fun to drive.
