  1. Front End Vibration when Cold, Goes Away after 5 Miles

    Lexus CT200h Engine and Technical Discussion.
    I bought a used CT200H a year ago, with 46,000 on the odometer. During the test drive I noticed some front end vibration, told them "no sale". Two days later salesman calls, says they found tire was out of balance on front so come back and do another test drive. I did, and the vibration was gone...

  3. Baby it's cold outside

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    The cold snap that's affecting a good portion of North America is going full blast here. Thanks to the engine block heater there was no problem starting up this morning. Other than a few rattles from the dash there were no adverse effects of the extreme cold. Fuel consumption is way up, of...

    Lexus CT200h Engine and Technical Discussion.
    Yesterday morning something strange happened to me on the way to work. It was about 20 deg F outside, so the car was cold. After 3 min of driving, the climate control system starting slowing ramping up the heater fan, which is normal. However, what was abnormal is that the air coming out of...

  6. Cold Temperature MPG's

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    I just logged my lowest MPG measurement since I purchased my car. I scored 38 mpg this time around when I normally get 44 mpg. My driving habits are unchanged, so I attribute it to the cold winter weather we've been experiencing in the Denver metro area. The last few weeks we've seen...

  10. Cold start knocking, vibration, rough idle....

    Lexus CT200h Engine and Technical Discussion.

  11. Hybrid Engine Cold Start (Temperature Gauge Missing)

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    Hello fellow CT lovers/owners I live in Canada and now that winter has struck, I start my car after it's been sitting out in the cold for several hours, sometimes overnight before I drive it again. With traditional engines, there was a temperature gauge that would show you when the engine had...
  12. Car sputtering on cold start?

    I turned the car on about 12 noon, it was about 50 degrees outside. It had about a half tank of gas. I turned the car on, and it started sputtering for about 15 seconds. No warning lights came on, and it stopped on it's own and I drove 400 miles on it and it was totally fine. My guess is the...
  13. Auto climate system slow to come on on cold days

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    I've noticed that when I start my CT on cold days and drive it out of the garage it takes about 3-5 minutes before the auto climate control engages (I typically have the auto temp at 25c). This is not very good since the windows start fogging up and it takes too long for the auto climate control...
