In other words, intelligent design, such as it might be in cars, is no substitute for intelligent driving.:agreed:

Bert,
Thanks for devoting so much time to replying to me. Coincidentally, I will be at the dealer this afternoon for a NAV update and I'll ask them about it then.

How smart is my Lexus?

I have seen references here to the RX 450h's ability to adjust to your personal driving style, to help you maximize your MPG. Can anybody explain it that's true and, if so, how the car does it?

Fortunately, the dealer's service department is open on Sundays. I spoke to the service adviser; he gave me the number for Lexus Roadside Assistance (which I think I already had somewhere). I called...

Among other things, they performed a brake flush and refilled with new brake fluid and replaced the rear differential oil. Since the leak is at the rear, I'm guessing it's differential fluid.

My RX is leaking

I took my RX450h in for its 30K service last Wednesday. This morning, I noticed a big wet spot in our driveway as I was returning from an errand. It turns out I have a leak somewhere in the rear axle...

Axle nuts or bolts, whatever they call 'em. I had the same problem. I heard a click on both acceleration and braking, from the right front. I asked the dealer to tighten the thingamajigs and, voila...

The "click" is gone!

vlad_a, I took my RX450h back to the Monterey dealer this past week and asked them to check the left-front axle nut. Though the service adviser said the design of the axle nut in the RX is not the...

I think I've got it!

Yesterday I took my RX450h to an excellent independent shop (recommended by a relative and highly praised on Yelp!) to see if they could figure out the source of the clicking noise which they agreed...

As I've mentioned before, I'd planned to wait for the NX300h before upgrading from my '07 RAV4. But then I found this CPO RX450h with only 15,000 miles on it at a very fair price. It was just too...

I am presently averaging better than 28 mpg (measured at the pump) with our 2010 RX450h. I got 30.8 mpg on my last tank of gas -- with around 85% highway miles at 62-65 mph. I would probably be...

The sound is coming from under the car, left front

It happens after I've been driving at residential-street speeds for awhile, when I brake and when I accelerate away from lights or stop signs (starting from 0 mph). I'm guessing this has something to...

Tire replacement, looking ahead

The tires on our 2010 AWD RXh have 20,000 miles on them. They are 19-inch high-performance Michelins. I hope they have another 20K miles in them, but I read that high-performance tires don't last as...

I took the car in to the dealer (40 miles away) yesterday, and of course, the car would not make the funny sound when a technician when for a ride-along with me. Figures.

My car makes a funny sound

My 2010 RX 450h makes an odd noise when I accelerate and when I brake; not all the time, but often enough to make me wonder what if anything is going on. This noise sounds most like a quick, light...

NVH is why I replaced my 6-cylinder '07 RAV4 Limited with an almost-new (with just 15,000 miles on it) 2010 RX 450h. It was just too good a deal to pass up so I decided not to wait for the NX. I'll...

Even 8-10 more mpg wouldn't make me swap our barely broken-in 2010 RX 450h for a new NX 300h. Not only would I not want to give up the RX's power (which I mostly hold in reserve), but I'm doubting...

Seeing as how we're already averaging close to 28 mpg in our 2010 RX 450h, that wouldn't be enough of a fuel-economy improvement to tempt me to trade it in for a lower-powered, smaller, and probably...

According to the story, it's not much smaller than the space in the RX 450h, maybe because the battery is positioned differently?
