I am getting about 13 mpg on eco mode in the city. Per the sticker, it should be getting around 22 city.
I have taken it in several times and am told there's nothing wrong with it. The tech resets the mileage button, drives it for a bit and it reads higher. When I brought it home from my last appointment, it read 16 or 17 mpg when I pulled into my garage. When I started it the next morning, it said 13 mpg and has stayed there, or a little lower. It's driving me crazy! I've been keeping a picture log in my phone but that doesn't help.
This is my 5th RX. I've never had this issue before. While I know there are variables in traffic conditions and driving styles, nothing's changed in my situation to cause such a large gap between sticker and actual.
Is anyone else having problems with low mileage on theirs?
I am having a problem with my 2007 RX350 from yesterday.
I have only one key and one after market remote starter. When I try to start the car with the key, the car's security alarm/ panic alarm goes on and it does not start. The key still closes and opens the doors.
On the other hand, I can still start the car with my after market remote starter, and after that when I put key into ignition, and turn in into on position, the car starts panicing again but I can still drive it with panic alarm.
I talked with lexus roadside assistance guys, their suggestions are working.
Can anyone please help?
Thanks in advance!
I recently had an oil change at the dealer and they mentioned I should consider replacing the original drive belt in my RX 350. I have 86K miles. Is this the same thing as the serpentine belt or timing chain I see mentioned elsewhere? Is this normal time for replacement? The dealer said the technician noticed my original drive belt had some cracks in it. I am trying to determine whether this is legit. Any help would be most appreciated.
I'm about ready to retire (aka hand down to my son) my 99 RX300 and thinking about a new one. I understand that investing in a depreciating item isn't advisable. I like the idea of lower monthly payments as compared to financing, but at least my finance payments would ultimately result in me owning something whereas years of paying on a lease and all I get is a receipt.
Is there a simple answer to this?
I appreciate your input,
