The Lexus RX400h, unveiled at the 2004 North American International Auto Show, marked its place in history as the first production premium hybrid vehicle when it hit the markets in 2005. Despite its delayed launch in the U.S., it was met with substantial anticipation, with over 9,000 pre-ordered units. The RX400h distinguished itself from its predecessors with a unique front grille, round fog lights, LED taillights, and a range of distinct exterior colors. The 2007 edition added Hybrid badging to the rear side doors. The interior showcased a hybrid information display on the navigation screen or instrument panel for models without a navigation screen. Initially, it had brushed aluminum interior accents instead of the typical wood trim, but the 2006 model reintroduced the Bird's Eye Maple wood trim. The RX400h was sold in the U.S. with an initial base price of US$49,185, with a front-wheel drive variant introduced in 2006. The 2008 RX400h underwent a facelift, featuring a blue Lexus badge and a rear spoiler matching the body color. Powering the RX400h was a 3.3-liter 3MZ-FE V6 engine delivering 208 horsepower and 288 Nm of torque, assisted by two additional electric motors; one driving the front wheels producing 165 horsepower and 333 Nm torque, and the other driving the rear wheels with an output of 68 PS and 130 Nm torque.
Despite its innovative gasoline-electric drivetrain and luxurious features, the Lexus RX400h SUV still experiences common vehicle issues such as premature braking and suspension failures. Drivers have reported a spongy brake pedal, noisy and poorly responsive brakes, which often require renewing the brake pad set and wheel cylinder repair kit. Suspension failure typically relates to the strut housing. Engine issues are another concern, with signs such as constant overheating, reduced engine performance, and starting problems. These symptoms, coupled with an activated Check Engine Light, call for the inspection of the RX400h radiator, air filter, oxygen sensor, and oil filter. Maintaining your Lexus RX400h requires routine maintenance and awareness of which parts need it. The wiper blade, though not usually a focal point, should be replaced regularly due to its exposure to harsh weather conditions, ensuring good visibility and safe driving. Other parts like the door handle, door lock, and emblem also need regular maintenance.
