  1. Weird “fart” noise when braking

    Lexus CT200h Engine and Technical Discussion.
    Hello all, I have a 2012 ct200 with 65k miles. Car had been amazing but recently I have been hearing a noise when braking. It almost sounds like a quick fart. Best way to explain it. It does it right before I come to a complete stop, not when I begin braking. Most times it only happens when...
  2. Slight noise when braking lightly initially

    Lexus CT200h Engine and Technical Discussion.
    I just bought a 2016 CT200H standard at 33k miles. When I brake lightly, I can hear some slight metal rubbing noise on initial contact. When I brake further, the noise is gone. I went to a brake shop and was told the brake pad is plenty with at least 50% left. Is this a thing about hybrid car? I...
  3. 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...
  4. clicking sound on front end when braking

    Lexus CT200h Engine and Technical Discussion.
    I don't notice the brakes failing at all, just this weird clicking noise when i press the brakes. I've always kind of thought the brakes were a little soft, but that's been consistent. Now I just hear this clicking noise on the front left side. Anyone ever hear of this before?
  5. Weird "squaking" noise when braking hard

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    Anyone heard of a similar issue or experienced this? Over the last several weeks, there is an occasional squaking noise (best description I can summon). The noise seems to be coming from the drivers side front and perhaps under the dashboard area.
  6. Weird brake noise

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    Hi all, I would like to reach out to CT users for their views and share their experiences if they are also experiencing a similar issue. Whenever I brake, at low speeds, below 12 or 10mph or even 5mph, and brake gently, there is a noise that goes like a rhythmic "tak, tak, tak". It is not the...
  7. Loud braking sounds

    Lexus CT200h Engine and Technical Discussion.
    Hoping someone here can help diagnose this issue, the dealer can't seem to-I've brought this to their attention 3-4 times now. When coming close to a stop during moderate braking, on occasion a very loud vibration sound comes from the front area of the car. Almost like the ABS is kicking in...
  8. Funny sound when braking

    Lexus CT200h Engine and Technical Discussion.
    Have you guys ever experienced a plunging/pumping funny sound when braking (running stop). Feels like a toilet plunger. Sent from my iPhone using AutoGuide.com Free App
