Innovative, Surprising, GREAT Driving Machine by j007dg on 10/14/2013. Trim: 2012 Lexus HS 250h 250h Premium, Owned 2 years.
Pros: This is my second Lexus and my third Toyota product. My previous Lexus, a GS 300 AWD was downright awful with far too concerns, and regular ongoing problems, many acknowledged by Lexus and repaired BUT at cost to me in terms of time, annoyance and aggravation. By contrast, my Lexus HS 250h is turning out to be my FAVOURITE vehicle of all time. No problems with the vehicle at all despite the media stories. Mid-range pricing for innovative vehicle versus my GS which was high-priced for poor performance. LOVE this HS 250h!
Cons: No real dislikes; a bit bland in styling, although the fit and finish is VERY high quality. The interior finishes are made from bio-plastics, so they are not the same appearance as other Lexus vehicles interiors but still fantastic quality. My seat cushions are made from a renewable resource as well - Kenaf plant. Again, the leather covering the innovative cushioning is not the original cut leather but a distressed leather so, appearance is not perfect but still very innovative. Once you understand the vehicle and the design intentions, the car exposes a truly great experience, even if a bit dull in appearance.
Overall review: My Lexus HS 250h is my BEST car ever, albeit NOT my most expensive. In the early 1990's I had a Mazda RX - 7 that was awesome and would be second now, to this HS 250h. Oddly, my most expensive car ever, my Lexus GS 300 AWD, was also my second worst vehicle ever, second only to a 1986 Pontiac Fiero that was a true lemon. I did have another Toyota, an Avalon XLS, that would rank as my third best car ever, and another GM, an Oldsmobile Aurora, that was a good vehicle ranking above the GS 300 AWD. One of my surprise favourites was a 1995 Chevrolet Camaro with an LT1 engine that would rank as my 4th favourite vehicle ever. I guess, what I am saying is, I have driven enough new cars to have a sense for what I am driving and this HS 250h is a surprisingly great car. Even the acceleration is unique because you have IMMEDIATE access to the torque from the electric engine - I am usually first across an intersection! Drive one; you will like it!!
