Vista Lexus Woodland Hills Complaint - Sucks! - Lease!

Review by lajacob26 on 2010-10-14
I got a Lexus hs250 hybrid lease from this dealership and I have had the worst experience with it! The vehicle has a problem where I cannot get the advertised 35 mpg, instead I get 25 mpg!! I brought this to their attention and they have done nothing to accommodate me. I had the car inspected and the test shows that I get on average 23 mpg and no more than 25 mpg. 10 mpg at the least is a huge difference! I am completely unhappy with the service they have provided for me after my lease purchase. They did everything to get me into the car and did nothing to get me out of it. And the story has just started... if anybody would like to know more about this, please e-mail. lajacob26@yahoo. com

If you drive the car under the most perfect conditions to achieve the maximum mpg, then you should be able to get the 35 mpg. No one drives under those conditions, so you won't reach it.

How are you driving the car? I have a hybrid and you have to drive it REALLY carefully to get maximum MPG. That means, for some examples, taking off as soon as you start the car (no idling), keeping the RPMs under 2 at all times, not using the AC (other than on ECON) or defrosters. Obviously, there are times when you can't avoid any of these situations, which will detract from MPG.

I guarantee that if you drive the car like most people drive their cars, you will not get anywhere near the advertised MPG. If you drive it carefully and read up on tips to maximize your MPG, then you will have a better chance of hitting that MPG.

I had a 2007 Honda Civic hybrid and it got about 35 MPG. Not even close to the 49 that they claim. I will never get another hybrid. My 2010 4Runner gets 19 MPG. Just say no to hybrids.

I have a 2009 Ford Escape hybrid. It's a 4WD, so I believe the advertised MPG is 29. We consistently get over 30 MPG.

Say yes to hybrids, but know how to drive them!
