"Our 08 Lexus is fully loaded RX with about every option available, navi, Levinson stereo, blue tooth, leather, heated seats, tow package, (highest premium package), backup camera, etc. etc. Has many other features, too many to mention.
We absolutely love the car. We wanted a 4WD SUV (snow in winter), and this car has more than filled the bill. We had hybrids previously, and weren't afraid to go with the 400h. It's getting 25 in town, without trying to hard to maximize economy.
We already knew the technic's of how to properly drive a hybrid, so we got good mileage right away. (It will coast like no other car we ever had.) We use 87 octane with out ethanol, and actually got better mileage with the non-ethanol 87, than premium ethanol. Use full synthetic oil.
It's simply a pleasure to drive. Handles tight and firm, but in a luxurious manner. Kind of hard to describe, but it's just nice to drive. My wife has claimed the car as hers. She won't drive anything else. Bit I sneak it out occasionally.
In a word quality. Our next car will be another hybrid RX.
Our friend has a 2000 RX with 175,000 miles, and has maintained it well, and see's no end to driving his until the wheels fall off.
Highly recommend for excellent quality, reliability durability, and resale value. Lexus has the best service at dealers than I have ever experienced."
