    ct200h breaks down

    I purchased a used private party 2013 f sport ct200h 1 month ago. 34k miles on the clock. Test drove and inspected, no problems. Researched reliability (number 1 determining factor for purchase). With 36k miles on the odometer last week all the lights on my dashboard lit up, lost power steering and brakes. So the car is 4-5 months out of warranty period but well below the 50k mile mark. Come to find out it is a master brake cylinder and boost ecu short/ failure The whole assembly costs $2500 not including 5 hrs of labor. I contacted corporate through Lexus of Seattle and to see if they would subsidize the repair or help out in any form. They flat out denied any assistance. As you can imagine I am not pleased with my Lexus experience. Did not want to let this go unnoticed, just in case other owners started having similar problems so they would know what to expect.

    That totally sucks to hear. My '13 f sport is still going strong at 57k miles. I have a friend who is a lexus tech if you want someone to maybe do some work at a discounted rate. He always told me the CT is easily a quarter million mile car with mild maintenance. I'd have to ask if he'd be willing to look at it though.
