  1. 2011 CT200h Long Term Reliability

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    I'm considering an '11 or '12 CT200h as a short commuter car. Basically, a hybrid would be best in my case. I'm wondering if the '11s are still reliable. Is there anything I should be on the look out for regarding this vehicle? Is it solid? I did a search and seems like most people like the...
  2. CT200H Comfort & Long Legs

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    Hi all - first post! I've read a lot of threads about how comfortable the CT200H is on both short and long trips. Most of the threads comment on the comfort of the seats. Do any of you have long legs, and if the orientation of the center console an issue for you while driving? I...
  3. How long can you leave your Lexus Ct200 without driving it before the battery dies?

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    I am going away for graduate school and considering leaving my car at home until I'm done with school. I will be gone for 6 months, back home for xmas and then gone again for maybe another 6-12 months. Since it won't be charging how long can you leave it without driving until the battery goes...
  4. Long Term Storage (Battery Issue)

    Lexus CT200h Audio/Electronics Forum
    I used to put my pickup truck before purchasing the CT on a Battery Tender when I left for international business trip all the time. The trip ranges from 2 weeks to 1 month. Wondering if I can still used the Battery Tender on a CT as I feel like I don't want to put some external charger on it...
  5. How long should it take to "prepare" USB?

    Lexus CT200h Audio/Electronics Forum
    Just drove off the lot with my CT today! Mostly I've got the audio/nav stuff figured out but having one issue. When I plug my iPod into the USB port, it works fine. I can find all artists/songs etc and can play songs using voice commands. When I plug the USB in (with the exact same folder...

  9. Rear Camera Takes Too Long to Display

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    When I get in and pop the car in reverse I have to wait a good 20+ seconds for the lexus start screens to finish before the camera turns. Incredibly annoying and purpose defeating for the camera if I just decide to back up anyway. Is there anyway to turn off the intro screens? I get that I have...

  14. CT on long trips

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    I've read several comments about the CT not being the car of choice for long trips. I am planning on driving my CT on long trips. TX to the mountains of NC a couple of times a year. My RX can guzzle $400 in gas on that round trip so to my way of thinking, this trip is key in my decision to...
  15. How long did the dealer tell you it would take to get your CT?

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    I order mine 5 weeks ago. I called the dealer up yesterday and they told me that they haven't heard anything back yet from Lexus. They told me that because they haven't heard anything yet that it could still take another 6-8 weeks. Seems like people on this forum are getting them quicker...
  16. How long do the Smart Key batteries last?

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    I've never owned a Lexus or any Smark Key, push button start vehicle... What is the average 'real life' battery time for our Smart Keys? I know that manuals tend to exagerrate a bit. I think it said every 1-2 yrs is recommended... but even those keyless remote entry ones say that, and my...
  17. Why I wait for the CT (long):

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    Seeing some of the other posts about people (including myself) getting fed up with waiting for orders when a lot of the reviews are so lackluster, I thought I’d take this opportunity to also express my thoughts/frustrations since I was really ready to have a new car a month or 2 ago. I do agree...
