Mileage On Rx 450H

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Got a new '10 RX 450H last week and have put about 200 miles on it - mostly highway, but in rush-hour traffic that is very city-like. Very disappointed with the mileage I'm getting so far - about 16.7 mpg. What gives? Is there a break-in period after which I'll see better mpg? Is it because the hybrid battery is not fully charged?

Any help/advice appreciated. Thanks.

Hello, My RX450h now has 5400 mi. I'm now getting 27-28mpg city. 28 highway. It will get better as it breaks in. Many things no longer need a break in period, however the engine does. Enjoy your car.

Thank you. Took the car out for a 300-mile highway drive yesterday and got 29.2 mpg. Quite pleased with it now.
