  2. Rx 450H Mileage

    Hey boatguy, it sounds like your the only one who got what they paid for, cause I bought my 2006 400H new and have 60,000 miles and my average town and highway is like the rest , 24 to 25 MPG, after sticker said I would get over 30MPG.
  3. I bought a new 2006 RX 400H and it is now 2014 and I still don't have a smog test required. Has anyone out their had to do a Ca. smog test on their hybrid including Prius.
  4. I have a 2006 RX400H bought new from Crown Ontario Ca. lexus, with 50,000 miles on it. There service manager said they do not have many problems with them and if it was his car he would not get the extended warranty, and I didn't. (knock on wood)
  5. The service manager at my dealer said the dvd of maps will not effect my override button, so I am off to update my maps, I will post if it works Ok and if it does not, you should be able to hear me swearing with your P/C . In case you did not hear me, I no longer have override of the motion sensor, I have not tried putting the old dvd in and re booting, I am searching the internet for a hack to the gen 4 -11 upgrade. I hope this keeps someone from up grading that wants to keep his override button on volume menu. I put the original map DVD back in and I still no longer have override. I called the service manager and he said bring it in and a tech would look at it. The tech told him the new Dvd deletes the override and you cannot get it back. He told me since he told me I would keep my override, that he knew a guy that installed the lock pick and he would pay. I said thats fair enough.
  6. Thanks for the reply BobBass, but I am looking for someone who bought the gen4-11 and installed it, and still have the overide. There is suppose to be a lock pick device for a couple hundred dollars, but I am not interested in spending more money for once in a while use. I've seen the previous post that they lost the overide when they upgraded their maps, I am hoping the gen4-11 is different.
  7. Does anyone know if you can use the override button with this new version Gen4-11, 11.1? I want new maps but I don't want to give up override.
  8. Does anyone know if you can use Gen4 override with this new 11.1 disk
  9. Grade Of Gaz

    I have a 2006 RX400H, I bought it new. I have run ARCO reg. since I bought it with no problem. About two years ago I decided mid grade did not cost much more so I switched. After about 5 tank fulls , I did not notice any difference and believe it or not, I was getting less miles per gallon, so I went back to regular. I now have 40,000 miles on it with no problems. On trips I average 25 mpg at 75 mph, and 23 mpg in town.
  10. Cracked Windshield

    My 2006 rx400h gets hit by more rocks than any car I have ever had, and it is not just because it is black that you see them. In Oct. of 2007 I had 2 window chips patched for $75, and then coming ,back from Wa. state got a 6 inch crack that I had to replace the windshield that the insurance company paid $1100 less $100 deductible in Jan. 2008. 3 days ago I got another rock chip on the freeway on the new windshield.
  11. Mpg

    I have a 2006 400H and decided to start running 89 octane gas because it was not that much more than 87 octane and thought it would improve my mileage. Well for some reason I am getting worse mileage , from 25mpg to 22mpg, I have ran about 10 tank fulls including 500 mile trips and town driving. Bought the car new and have 25,000 miles on it now.
