Since you have a 2010, what does the ECO mode do? What I wqould like is the capability to upshift at lower speeds like I had in my Mercedes 230 Compressor. I could select 5th gear at 20 mph.
Is ECO just a light or a switch?

It is just a light which illuminates when you are driving economically. If you try to keep it lit up at all times you will improve your fuel economy significantly.

I recently purchased my fourth Lexus RX. Previously owned a 2000, 2004 & 2006 hybrid. While the mpg for my new car is not quite as impressive as with the hybrid, overall I get 22-23 mpg with a mix of city and highway driving in mountainous terrain. The car has about 2000 miles on it right now. What I lost in gas savings I gained in insurance premiums savings, as my annual premium has decreased by about $500!
