2008 Lexus RX 400hSEXY LEXY - Central Texas03/24/2011
Prior to purchasing this RX 400H, I was always a big luxury suv girl, but recent times with the gas prices being so crazy had to have a change of lifestyle. But i really expected better gas mileage than the 24/25 city. When i purchased it the sticker had said 31/32 city mpg. But its getting better.
Smooth ride, great gas mileage IF you know how to drive a hybrid. This is not a SUV that you just pummel down the highway, you have to drive it gently in order to get the best mileage.
Plenty of room for a family of three, anymore than that, get something bigger.
And to those that said this car can't handle snow, I drove it around in one of the worst winters California has seen in years. We had about 50 inches of snow and this car was great on wet snow and ice.
I've also taken it in the backcountry, in deep snow, and it was fine. Just bring a shovel and know what you are doing.

2007 model now has 47K miles. Excellent vehicle for performance, comfort and ride. Electronic system is very intuitive and easy to navigate. Only complaint is that city driving in hilly country where I live only gives 22-23 mph (but 27 mph on the highway is achievable - as advertised). With premium gas, I don't think you save much in total gas costs compared to non-hybrid version if most of your driving is in the city.
