About Lexus HS 250h
Lexus HS 250h is a dedicated hybrid entry-level luxury compact vehicle manufactured by the extraordinary Japanese automaker Toyota's luxury automotive division Lexus from 2009 to 2012. The first Lexus HS 250h was introduced in 2009 as the first dedicated hybrid vehicle in the Lexus' lineup. "HS" in its name stands for "Hybrid Sedan". Although being produced for only about three years, Lexus HS 250h soon became the top-selling Lexus hybrid vehicle.
Although Lexus HS 250h made its debut at the 2008 North American International Auto Show but it did not go on sale in August 2009 as a 2010 model in the United States. Built based on many models such as Toyota Avensis, Toyota Allion, Toyota Premio and so on, Lexus HS 250h became an environmentally responsible luxury vehicle. It came in base and Premium trim levels. But both were powered by a 2.4 L 2AZ-FXE inline 4-cylinder engine that could produce 147 hp and 105 pound feet of torque and an electric motor for a combined output of 187 hp, which is similar to Toyota Camry Hybrid. And this engine was mated to the Continuously Various Transmission (CVT). The Lexus HS 250h can be operated in either driver-selectable EV, Eco, Normal, or Power modes.
Lexus HS 250h Common Problems & Maintenance Tips

If you also sense slow acceleration, poor fuel economy and illuminated Check Engine Light in your Lexus HS 250h, HS 250h spark plug, ignition coil, air filter, oil filter and drive belt could be the culprits.
