Great mileage and durability for a Lexus.

I get about 51 mpg city/Hwy, and I bought it in 2017. It is a 2012 and only has 25,000 miles on it and it is still running beautifully. I take care of t and keep on top of maintenance however. One thing that bothers me is that it seems to slide/skid a bit when braking over metal but I think it is because it is such a heavy little car. Definitely a tank that can take a beating. I drive it around the city and it does a great job on the battery or on gas.

Great car, great gas mileage - perfect commuter car!

It's a really car, it definitely helps with saving money on gas. It gets amazing gas mileage and what they don't tell you - is that when you get used to driving the hybrid (it takes a little getting used to), you can actually get better mileage than what they tell you. I get about 50+ miles to the gallon after driving mine for 3 years. I'd recommend both the Lexus CT200h and Lexus itself.

Lexus gas mileage is great!

The Lexus is very good on gas. It has gotten me to many places and it is a very reliable car. The only problems I have had with it is the alignment and a rattling noise that comes from the steering wheel that comes up when you reach a certain speed on the freeway. This car is not the car that I love to drive, but since I drive distance it gets the job done.
