    I wasn't able to querry the forum prior to buying, but it is a 2014 "Sport" with 20K for ~$20K. The car if from Chicago area (I'm in MD). It drives well and everything seems to work fine. I don't have service records but did have the car checked out today by my local Nissan and no problems...

    Lexus CT200h Engine and Technical Discussion.

    Hi guys, what is your take on waxing a brand new car? I have been hearing mixed reviews about this situation. Any advice from this community would be greatly appreciated.
  4. Damaged undercarriage. How bad is it?

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    So I hit the corner of a curb today, in my 6 month old 2015, trying to make a turn while being boxed in on a narrow street. Just after getting the car cleaned and waxed too! I was just wondering if anyone knew if this type of damage should concern me. I know the steel part is bent and the...

  6. Bad News! 1 Wrecked CT, and another on the way :/

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    Hey all, I just thought I would humor you with an update of my CT purchase. I work at a Lexus dealer, and when I decided to get a CT a couple weeks ago, I located one from another Lexus inventory that was the color combo and equipment I was looking for. Long story short, the car was supposed...
  7. Bad scratch. How to fix? Photo inside

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    I was at the drive-through bank and got too close to the curb and got a bad scratch. See photos below. I'm thinking it probably needs to be sanded. Is this something I could fix with touch-up paint, or should I just take it to the dealer? Any idea how much the dealer would charge to fix this...
  8. My License Plate LED (M35) Went Bad

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    So I got the set from Tony at Luxury Mods about a year ago...one of them went dim for whatever reason. I need to order a new set but when I go to Luxurymods.com, they don't show them anymore. Does anyone have a recommendation on where to buy a set based on LED's they have purchased. I even...
  9. Dealer Tint bad Idea?

    Lexus CT200h Appearance and Body
    I went with the 'dealer' tint. And thus far I have what appears 'bubbling'. THey say it will 'disappear' in a few days. The last time I had my car tinted this was not the case. Also tint isn't as dark as I would like. Guess NC regulations might prevent darker tint? Dealer charged $400.00...
  10. How bad is the sweat factor?

    Lexus CT200h Appearance and Body
    Hey guys.....and gals. Having owned several old British sports cars with the fake leather seats I am wondering how bad these Nuluxe seats make your back and thighs sweat? Not from the seats getting hot in the sun but from just sitting on something that won't breath. I like leather but it seems...
  11. Is constant toggling the different modes bad?

    Lexus CT200h Engine and Technical Discussion.
    Just curious if constantly changing the mode's is bad for the system as oppose to leaving it in one mode. Some electronics shortens its life with constantly turning on and off due to electrical surges. I would think that there is some taxing of the system as on the fly command is being switched.
