Congrats on the car and hope your dad enjoys it!

BTW, what model year is it and what’s the mileage?

I like the idea of hybrids but I’m always afraid of the battery going and it costing a fortune to replace.

May be a little off topic but not sure where to post. I have a 2013 BMW X5, and it's running at about 14.6 liters / 100km. I was wondering whether anyone would know whether this is comparable to people driving the same car or is this too high? Driving mix of city/highway 70/30.

x5 35 ? That's about right. Maybe you could improve it by doing carbon cleaning

Explore www.fuelly.com for your year and engine to get a pretty good idea of what other get. Just change the units from default US to L/100km. You seem to be on the high side of average.

congrats on the purchase for your dad! i'm little late to the post but I'm sure your dad will love this suv.

I always thought most Lexus take premium gas which didn't make them worthwhile in terms of fuel efficiency. however, gas prices are actually low now!

I respectfully disagree and request proof of that bold statement. There are tons of older CRV, Rav4s, Subarus, etc with smaller engines that produce way less hp than newer models that have been very reliable and have high kms. All modern cars can have 300,000+ km put on them, just a question of when does body rust out, etc.

A huge V6 in SUV only allows you to Tow more, but if just for a family, totally disagree any smaller fuel efficient engine can't get higher kms.

Yes, cars can go upto 300k because they are cars not big SUVS and can run smoothly with a smaller engine. CRVs and RAV4 are compact SUVs and not a big Sienna. You yourself state that a huge V6 in SUV allows you to Tow more .The weight in question is the weight of the SUV . Think it this way, which is a better option to tow the weight of a Sienna,smaller 2.0L and a 2.4L engine or a big V6.
one of the reasons why i chose a highlander from toyota. naturally aspirated V6 3.5L engine will outlast these new 4 cylinder turbos anyday
