compuz1 Posted October 12, 2006 Share Posted October 12, 2006 Hi All, Just bought a '07 400h. Love the car thus far. A few questions though. 1.) I know the '06 RX had a recall (or just a recurring problem) between 35-40mph where it would stutter and vibrate. I noticed something similar, however when passing 40mph in my '07. I think it may be normal however, but here goes. When I pass 40mph (usually accelerating onto a highway or in traffic), and if the dashboard shows both battery and engine power (not sure of the technical terms for it) the car makes a loud revving noise. It doesn't vibrate, however the noise is noticeable. Is this normal (an aspect of CVT or the hybrid system perhaps) or indicative of a larger problem. I am somewhat of a perfectionist so while others may not notice it, I would. 2.) My Bluetooth connection drops constantly. I have a V3 razr and the in-dash system I have is Gen5 with 6.1 software in it. Often in a call the display will say "call terminated by network" but I can continue it on my phone. This often happens when I begin to loose network coverage. However it has happened in other places. 3.) I get wildly varying gas mileage. At first it was 20mpg, now with 90% city driving and often less than 2 mile trips (Boston driving) it drops from 12.8 to 17.3 mpg. I think this is probably normal and is indicitive of my driving style (rev the engine to pass other cars) and plenty of sitting in a car while not moving. Perhaps I should allow the battery to drive the car more? Lastly I love this car, how are others loving the '07s? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
