    Lexus CT200h Appearance and Body
    Hey all, My driver's side fender liner came loose and fell off while I was driving on the highway. It went from a rattle to a clunking sound, and then the whole thing just ripped off off before I had a chance to pull over. Basically the whole plastic piece ripped off, and I can see clear...
  2. 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...

    Hi folks, Prior to purchasing the CT200h, I was cross shopping it with a loaded Prius IV with the PLUS Performance Package. I never driven a Prius with the PLUS package and was wondering if it actually provided better driving dynamics than a base CT200h. Does anyone here have any experience...
