Purchased 2010 Lexus HS250h Premium with 17K miles. Car was in almost new condition with exception of starter battery. Once that was replaced the car has run flawlessly. First experience with owning a hybrid so on a steep learning curve. If you really want to get the most MPG out of the hybrid system best to activate the 8� color LCD monitor and watch the dynamics between gas engine, electric motor, battery and regenerating brakes as you drive. Went on a 1,500 mile trip with two adults, three large suitcases and a good size cooler thru east Texas and hilly Arkansas averaging 38 MPG on regular gas at 65 - 75 MPH with A/C on over entire trip (vented leather seats were nice in the hot weather). This Lexus is not a dressed Prius and is larger than BMW 3 series. Material quality, fit and finish is very good.
Driving position is good for 6�2� tall person. Surprisingly front seats �sit up� a little higher than most cars this size (driver is 10 way and passenger is 8 way adjustable). We like the �mouse like� control between driver and passenger seats for the 8� LCD monitor. It is designed for both driver and passenger to operate. We have used several GPS systems and this one is good with 8� LCD monitor located in the center forward of dash easily seen by driver and passenger. Blue tooth works well. Already was spoiled by SirusXM in our other car. The Premium model is full of electronic features.
