There are a ton of options out there that would cost you far less -- take your pick. Did you not request pricing prior to ordering?

Do the math and compare. I find our RX 400h has a variance of anywhere from 0.19 MPG to 3.29 MPG.


Figures are based on standardized testing -- not what may or may not be "easy to attain" (which...

Tricky to tell by the photo but that looks like a mini USB connector. No telling where it goes. It could be connected to the stereo system or it could only be connected to power.

You'd really need to get a quote for the work. It's not just a matter of repainting but dealing with the rust as well. A full repaint of any vehicle will be very expensive.

If you're not sure with any vehicle then get it inspected. There are inspection services that you can use before going 500 miles to look at the vehicle yourself.

Interesting. The opposite seems true when we take our 400h in for service and get a 350 as a loaner.
