"I just turned 106,000 miles on my HS250h in four years. Excellent car. Really like smoothness and predictability of the CVT transmission. Gas mileage (33-35) a little less than advertised, but if I driving rural roads with 55 speed limit I can get over 40. Bump it to 75 and the mileage drops to low 30's. Road noise is excessive also. Only problem was a defective fuel pump at 30,000. Under warranty. NO problem. Outstanding dealer. Loaner car is always a new Lexus, not some junker off the back lot. Would buy another if they still made them."
"If anyone likes to drive a luxury car, but likes to pay less to do so then this car is an excellent choice. It has all of the bells & whistles that luxury cars have, however it is very easy on gas. It normally gets 36 mpg city, & 38 mpg highway."
Pros: "Great hybrid to drive. Less fill ups for gas"
Cons: "Trunk space limited"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"This car hugs the road. It has safety features that make you
feel comfortable when driving in all conditions. The mileage
for a luxury hybrid car that actually gets over 30+mpg in both the city and highway is great"
Pros: "great gas mileage on the highway 38-40mpg."
Cons: "No all wheel drive winter mpg is under 30mpg"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 5
"The car is great for use in the summer. Winter driving is not so great when driving up snow covered hills, despite the front wheel drive. The battery weight in the rear of the car defeats the benefit of front wheel drive."
"I just purchased this vehicle certified from a local Lexus dealer. I love the 40mpg I'm getting, although I expect it to go down a bit in cold weather. I have some bells and whistles eg navigation and Lexus does them all well.
Driving a hybrid takes a little getting used to, especially acceleration, which is a little sluggish. Once you are moving, there is no diff. Overall, I am very happy, with no regrets."
"I'm retired. last three cars were Lexus 350.
Liked them all except wanted better milage as I planned on taking road trips.
Happy to say the gas milegae is good, not quite as stated, but this car offers the comfort and features i wanted in a car.
I did drive a Prius, yes it was good, better mileage, but at my age and driving four Lexus' I'm spoiled, liking comfort features that the Prius didn't offer.
Yup! the price was different too, but I'm very happy with my HS 250."
