  1. Engine Thump On Acceleration

    Lexus CT200h Engine and Technical Discussion.
    Hey everyone i have posted a few concerns that I have on a car i purchased 3 days ago. The most annoying thing to me is the thump i feel in the front of the car when I accelerate from a dead stop. I mean every time i hit the gas i feel it. Everything i read about the ct says it has special...
  2. Ct200h vs. Prius acceleration

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    Just wondering. I'm aware that the CT and the Prius share the same powerplant, but I recall watching a video where the designer of the CT said the CT hybrid set up is different from the Prius. At full throttle, the CT puts out 650V of power until the gas engine kicks in. The Prius only puts...
  3. CT200h Acceleration

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    Lots has been said (criticized?) about the acceleration (or lack thereof) of the CT200h. From my perspective, a 0 to 60 time of a little over ten seconds for the hybrid ain't all that shabby when one considers the mileage it gets, and on regular grade fuel at that. Back in the mid-1960s, the...

  5. Toyota Unintended Acceleration Is B.S., Says NHTSA And DOT; Driver Error Blamed

    Lexus CT200h News and Reviews

  6. Expected Acceleration time.

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    Hi All, I am actually quite interested in the CT200h. However, one thing I am really concern is the acceleration time from 0-60. Will it be faster than 9s? I think anything above 9s is too slow.. more like 8s or something is the best. Any opinion?
