New RX450h owner in Victoria


Recommended Posts

Hi all

Just an introduction.

New to Lexus after buying a 2010 RX450h with 125,000 k's. Love it apart from relatively high fuel consumption at over 10l/100, and will use the forums to investigate this further.


Enjoy your cars - I am looking forward to a long while with mine.

being a 2010 model the hybrid battery will need replacing soon

lexus warrantys the battery for 8 yrs or 160K kms which ever comes first

the RX450h should be averaging around 7-8L per 100kms

i had a this problem in a customers LS600h and after the battery change it went down by 4ls

new battery installed from lexus was just under 6K

so a RX450h should be abit cheaper than that

Thanks ilv1004s

I guessed that the battery was a likely source of poor economy. I have it down to about 8.7 l/100 through light footing it. It takes time to save money!

Also looking to replace the windscreen on the car, because of light scratching by wipers that the last owner let get too thin. O'Briens just quoted me nearly $1000 AUD for a new non-OEM replacement (asking questions about rain sensors, which it has, and HUD, which it also has). Any suggestions as to a more economical approach in the Melbourne area?

Thank you also for the facebook link. I will go there and have a look see as well. Any additional assistance greatly appreciated.
