Default Lexus 450H poor gas mileage

I have had poor gas mileage since my purchase of the Lexus 450H, 18.2 MPG City/26 MPG HWY. Now After several service (5) appts resulting in "everything checks out fine" I rode with Lexus Specialist in Hybrids and he eaked out 24 MPG in City. Still not the stellar 30 MPG in city as advertised. I have filed a complaint with Texas Lemon Law. I am now dealing with the Lexus Dealership attorneys. Apparently based on other posts this is not an isolated event. Feel free to e-mail me if you want an update on the case. My e-mail for this is: [email protected]
Case # MVD Cause No. 12-0163-CAF, SOAH Docket No. 608-12-6754.CAF filed with the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles.

^^ its probably driving style more than anything if you are getting only 18mpg but another driver got 24mpg in the same vehicle. However, since you feel strongly enough to file suit, then good luck with your case

I rode with Lexus Specialist in Hybrids...
That indeed would have been an interesting ride. Would have been fun and informative picking that brain!!

I'm hoping you come back and start a new discussion as you travel through the inner workings of this Lemon Law process.

Been there done that with another brand of car make sure they use the millage when you first told them it was a bad car. I had to pay for a extra 1k miles and they put over 500 on the car.
