I was recently on the phone with a friend who was discussing her recent Lexus CT 200h, one which was having problems with fuel efficiency. This past weekend, I was driving out of my driveway to the garage to retrieve my other car and my friend and I were discussing her Lexus. Her car was in the shop and she was trying to explain to me the problem that she was experiencing.
I’ve had a couple of Lexis in the past, but I’ve never had a problem with fuel efficiency. I’m guessing it’s because her car is a different size from mine.
I can only guess that the reason your friend is having trouble is because she is running on the wrong type of gasoline, but its still a possibility. It may very well be that the problem is more the cost of the car than it is the gasoline itself. I know Ive had problems with my Honda Civic when Ive bought the wrong model. The problem was worse in my case, the cost of the car was much more than it was the fuel itself.
The good news is that there is a lot of research going on right now on this very topic. If you buy a new car, the easiest thing to do is get the fuel efficiency rating of the new model. The problem is that this is only about 30% of the total cost of the car, and I’d wager you’d have to go out and buy a new car in order to make it worthwhile.
I guess I can see how this is a real problem. You can get a Honda Civic that has a fuel economy rating of only 30,000 miles. To make it work, you are going to have to go to the dealer and tell them that your fuel efficiency rating is 30,000 miles. That is only an expense of your new car. That is not really a big deal to the dealer. They are simply going to list the mileage as 30,000 to the rest of us.
This is just a reality of the auto industry. And it is a reality of the car industry that you have a much better chance of saving money by buying a brand new car today versus buying a car that is older and has a higher mileage rating. Think of it like this: If you bought an older car with a fuel economy rating of less than 30,000 miles, you would have to buy a new car that is 30,000 miles or more for the same price.
That’s a lot of fuel and money for a car that you’d be better off buying new anyway.
Lexus is basically saying that you are more likely to buy a new car if you are willing to sacrifice a bit of value and have a new car. If you have a better deal on a new car that is 30,000 miles or more, you are less likely to buy a new car. Lexus says that you are more likely to save money if you are buying a car that is newer and has lower mileage.
Lexus also says that it is more likely to buy a new car if you have the option to buy a new one at a lower price. Lexus says that if you go for a better deal on new cars, the price at the dealer is likely to be higher than the price of the same car in the online auction. Since Lexus has the ability to sell a car at a lower price, the dealer would probably be willing to negotiate a better price at the website.
The problem is that once you have a car that is more than a few years old, the savings do not continue. You can end up buying a car at a price that is over $5,000 cheaper than the price of a new car.
