  1. Need Help: 2013 CT200 Brakes Sound

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    Hey Folks, I'm looking at buying a 2013 CT200h (my first hybrid vehicle). During my test drive today, I heard this sound every time I touched the brake pedal: https://gofile.io/?c=PMcQ7l That sound occurred, regardless if it was a light tap or a hard press on the pedal. I told the seller that...
  2. Farting type noise when braking (NOT A JOKE)

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    Seriously, I know it sounds weird. But occasionally when braking and sometimes after the car shuts off and the brakes, for lack of a better term, "power down" It sounds like air being released. Truly like a fart. Sounds like a joke, but I swear its not lol. Anybody had or heard of this problem...
  3. Driving with Parking Brake ON? (Soft Brakes)

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    The parking brake on the CT is easy to overlook. I always put it on while I park. However my brother took out the car recently and i don't believe he is as careful about ensuring it is turned off before he starts driving. Today i noticed my driving brakes seem a bit more mushy than usual. I am...
  4. Test drove some CTs - weird brakes?

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    So, I am in the market to purchase a 2014+ CT. So far, I test drive 3 of them (2013 f-sport, 2015 base & 2016 f-sport). I decided to stick with the 2014+ most likely, although I have come up with a weird issue during my test drives with the 15' and 16' models. I am also looking to see if a non...
  5. Regenerative Brakes

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    Hello all, I am quite new to this car and had it for about a week. One thing that bugs me out is the regenerative brakes. I usually lightly brake until I see the needle swipe to the CHARGE section. However, is that dragging brakes as well? When do you know when the real brakes kick in? Or am...
  6. "click" sound when the brake pedal is released

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    i noticed this today when i drove the CT with the window rolled down in traffic. this happens from stop, when i release the brakes and move the car, i hear a click coming from the outside of the car. i'm not sure if it's the brakes or the transmission. it's not really that loud, but it's...
  7. Brakes on the CT

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    Has anyone experienced the brake not responding as well as it should? The brake is super sensitive and great but there were a couple of times when I pressed down completely and I feel like the car still moved a bit. It's nothing severe where I feel like the car wont stop but Im just a little...
  8. Riding Brakes Downhill

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    I've read a lot about the regenerative braking system and want to validate a couple of conclusions with the group about long downhill mountainous driving: 1. Is it true that the "B" (Engine Braking) mode provides actual engine braking through the CVT and gasoline engine and not regenerative...
  9. Silly Question but...How Do The Brakes Work On A Hybrid

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    OK...I just broke 1000 miles on my car yesterday (3 weeks ownership). Noticed there isn't any dark brake dust on the wheels like there was when I had my old A6 or any other cars in the past. I know that the hybrids have "regenerative" braking but how does that work? Does that mean brakes get new...
  10. Loud high pitch screach from brakes at a stop?

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    Happened to me 3 times this weekend for the first time... Basically I am at a complete stop and out of nowhere I hear a loud high pitch screaching noise coming from front brakes area for a split second. Anyone has this same issue?
