Default Chariot of the Gods-Lexus RX450h

The interior is the immaculate conception. The exterior is almost as stunning. Bentley has been shamed. Rolls Royce has been shown up for the sham they are. When I ordered this vehicle I had no idea what I was getting into. I traded a 2008 RX400h thinking I was getting a very similar but updated vehicle. I did not expect a flawless interior that should be in the Guggenheim Museum. Little did I know it was a looker. It was like picking up what I thought was a dowry girl and undressing her only to fine excitement beyond belief. i'm driving Zeus' chariot.

Thumbs up

Congrats for your new 450h... being the 1st person on board to get 450h, you're a champion.

Please take some pic for us.



Be honest to you, I think you should know RX10 has the huge upgrade for its interior design and materials. You shouldn't be so surprised.

Looks like the same color as mine, Starfire Pearl. Mine should be at the port today. Should be here by Monday (hopefully).

Do you mind telling us how much discount your dealer gave to you?


Is this Hybrid the first/only 450h your dealer has? Curious!

The dealer gave me no discount.

He was so dishonest, or rather his firm Autonation is so dishonest, they tried to charge me sales tax on value of my trade in. My wife had to throw a screaming fit to get that removed. I'm filing charges witht he state of Florida for an attempt to illegally collect sales tax.

I'm a Costco member and he is a Costco dealer but I got no Costco discount. I'll complain to Costco.

It was his first one. A second one is due in a day or two. Another dealer contacted me today with another one.

The interior is grey.

It's very weird to see the saleman doing that. Are they out of mind?


I did MSRP with one of my cars, too. So far, I have heard many dealers are unwilling to give the discount out for 450h if you pre-order or they have no cars.

Even though the dealer may have 450h in the lot, it seems they're still looking for MSRP buyer at this time... ...

Congrats on the new RX 450h! The two-tone interior with the white/black armrests looks great!
