  1. MPH before engine kiks in

    Lexus CT200h Engine and Technical Discussion.
    Hi We have a speedlimit at 80 km/t (50mph) and it would be nice to tune the settings when the engine kicks in. Just 5 to 10 km/t more than it is now at 76 km/t (47mph) would be cool. Any of you who had tried this.? Cheers, Daniel.

    Lexus CT200h Engine and Technical Discussion.
    Does anyone else have a leak behind the engine on the passenger side? It runs down the gray cable that is attached to the engine. I took the car in to the dealer since it's under warranty and I will see what they say.

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    Had on of those rare moments on startup when the engine feels like it is shaking the car to death. Unfortunately a few minutes later the check engine light came on. On the positive side my service manager is great and they took me right in on a Monday morning. Diagnosed as a intake manifold...

    Lexus CT200h Engine and Technical Discussion.
    In late December our 2011 CT 200h suddenly chugged and jerked along the road and did not smooth out until about 60mph+.

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    Hello, after owning 2 Prius (2006+2010) and now driving the CT, I was used to the sound of the CVT while accelerating. Although Lexus did much better damping and insulation on the CT compared to the Prius, Auris HSD, and the Yaris HSD, I wanted to improve the status quo. Only thing I did was to...

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    I'm 6'2', coming from an Infiniti FX I always liked the fact that the driver's seat would automatically go the whole way back when the ignition was turned off and I opened the door. I checked the CT manual, but found no reference to the CT being able to do this...is it possible?
  19. Our Engine

    Lexus CT200h Engine and Technical Discussion.

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    Ran over something by accident in my 2012 ct200h, now the plastic piece underneath the engine compartment is cracked. Is this something that I can easily replace myself, or does the dealer have to do it? It was pretty easy to take the splash guard off my last car, just unscrew 6 bolts, but not...
