  1. Purchasing dealer loaner - good value?

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    I've been considering purchasing the ct for a while now and my 2007 VW is now at the point that it's costing me around $2000 just in repairs every year and the mileage is creeping up. SO, the car I'm looking at is a 2013 that has only been owned by the dealer and used as a loaner car. It has...

    What is Nuluxe made from? Dealer says "corn" but there is nothing on the web Hi All - First post, hope y'all are nice. Background: Wife is sensitive to synthetic leathers. We returned a 2011 Jetta SE (pre-owned, mind you) because the synthetic leather (polyurethane) was still off gassing and...

  4. Better gas mileage after visit dealer

    Lexus CT200h Engine and Technical Discussion.
    I notice after visiting dealer I am getting worse and worse mileage as time goes on. Once car goes to dealer my mileage increases and easily achieve 40 mpg. Is dealer clearing or doing something that would cause this increase? 4 weeks ago I went to the dealer and I was complaining about 34-36...
  5. Dealer Maintenance Costs

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    So, after 30,000 miles, I thought I would take my 2012 CT in for the factory maintenance cycle. (They haven't seen the car since about 15,000 miles) First, I change my own oil. It's really simple, and if you're not doing it, you should. It takes an absolute minimum of tools, and saves...

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    I was over on the Club Lexus forum and saw a guy post about Carista app for Android which allows you to change LPS on your own through the OBDII port... I decided to give it a try and ordered the OBDII bluetooth Adapter from amazon BAFX Products - Bluetooth OBD2 scan tool - For...
  7. Oil level after dealer service

    Lexus CT200h Engine and Technical Discussion.
    I just purchased a 2011 with 33k miles on it. The owner before me just had the 30k service done. I checked the engine oil and it is definitely at the mid point on the stick. It is super clean so it is a little difficult to tell. I checked it several times to make sure. I have a hard time...
  8. Dealer finance markup to get scaled back, say dealerships

    Off Topic Discussion
    Casual reports are emerging that an increasing number of car dealerships are starting to lessen their markups on replacement insurance and financing. The dealer finance markup, in addition to dealer insurance markup, could be pretty steep as often as not. How many times have you needed...

  13. Brand new CT with rear shock problem + dealer scratching bumper

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    I went to the service on last Saturday to have them look at this rattle/squeak problem from rear left side. It has been there since day 2 of this car, it was pretty annoying. First they thought it was some interior noise, then later they called me and told me it was Shock that was making noise...
  14. Can dynamic radar cruise control option be installed by dealer?

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    Does anyone know if the dynamic radar cruise control / pre-collision detection system option can be (reasonably) installed by a dealer on a CT premium with navigation? This doesn't seem to be a popular option - apparently no cars with it in the region - and I didn't want to wait for a special...
  15. CT200h Arrived, but Dealer Increased the Price. Legit?

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    I signed a Contract with my Lexus dealer in 2011 to order a basic (not Premium) CT200h at a price of MSRP. The dealer said that, if the price goes up in 2012, I will have to pay more. It took a while for the car to arrive, but it's here now, just the way I ordered it. The dealer now says...
  16. What did you receive from your dealer as a free gift (if anything)?

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    The last few cars I purchased (MINI,Toyota) came with a free gift thrown in by the dealer/salesperson. For the MINI, they threw in a free "appearance protection package" worth $195 and then they gave me a cute stuffed bulldog (their mascot) and a few other cute trinkets. For my Prius, the...
  17. 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...
  18. Dealer won't install F-sport grille and sports pedals in my CT ??

    Lexus CT200h Appearance and Body
    Well, I'm perplexed. I fell in love with the F-sport but didn't want black interior so I bought a Premium CT with nav and figured I'd soup it up with all the F-sport accessories afterward. I called my dealership today to ask about installing front grilles and sports pedals and they refuse to...
  19. 5 Hour beat down marathon at the Lexus dealer!

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    Man I had totally forgotten how horrible it can be to buy a car at a dealership! I didn't help myself by going to a brand new dealership (only open a month) and insisting on only a Fire Agate/Caramel CT Premium w/nav AND trading in a current car, but man they worked me with every trick in...
