The Lexus RX450h, a luxurious SUV, was launched in 2009 as a 2010 model, matching the size of its non-hybrid counterpart, the RX350. It made its way to markets in the U.S., Asia, including Japan, and Europe in the same year. The RX450h is powered by an upgraded 3.5 L 2GR-FXE V6 engine, similar to the RX350, producing 245 horsepower. However, the inclusion of new, lighter, and more efficient inverters boosts the total horsepower to 297 hp, thanks to an extra 22 horsepower from the electric motors. The hybrid system employs up to three electric motors, with two dual motors for the front wheels producing 123 kW and a third one for the rear wheels in the AWD model generating 50 kW. An enhanced efficiency is achieved through the RX450h's V6 engine running on the Atkinson cycle, with a lower compression ratio than the former Otto cycle system, resulting in more energy release and less energy consumption forming fuel-air mixtures. The 2022 RX450h offers easy steering and faster pickup compared to the non-hybrid models, with a brake-by-wire system providing smooth stopping capabilities, overcoming a common drawback in hybrid vehicles. While the RX450h may be slower than the non-hybrid RX350, it still offers a pleasingly smooth ride, reaching 60mph in just 7.3 seconds. The 2020 model year introduced an updated suspension, improving agility. The RX450h's interior is generously spacious, with wide front seats and a comfortable, reclining second-row seat. The well-insulated cabin efficiently blocks traffic and wind noise as well as tire drones, further enhancing the serene drive provided by the silent hybrid powertrain.
Despite the innovative design of the Lexus RX450h hybrid crossover SUV, it's not exempt from usual vehicle wear-and-tear. Drivers have reported braking issues, including noisy, poorly responsive brakes, and a pulsating brake pedal, which might necessitate a brake pad set replacement. Similarly, engine failure is a prevalent issue, often commencing with rattling sounds during idling, visible bubbles in the radiator tank, whitened oil, consistent overheating, and ultimately, an unstartable vehicle with reduced engine performance. Activation of the Check Engine Light calls for immediate inspection of the oxygen sensor, air filter, cylinder head gasket, and timing chain guide. Beyond these, it's essential not to overlook wear-prone parts such as the wiper blade, which should be replaced semi-annually for optimal visibility, and the emblem, which may loosen over time. The seat belt, a crucial safety feature, should be replaced immediately if the pretensioner is activated to ensure maximum protection during a collision.
