  1. Problem Going Into EV Mode Using the EV Button

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    I signed up for this forum when the CT200 had first came out in May 2011. I still have my car a little over 5 years later. I have a problem in that when I push the EV button near the shifter, going under 25 MPH and what appears to be a fully charged battery my car no longer goes into the EV mode...
  2. Wrong Jump start - Electrical mode not working

    Lexus CT200h Engine and Technical Discussion.
    Mistakenly put (-) to (+) while jump starting another car. CT was the donor car. Took me 30sec to a min to realise. There was smoke from the CT connector (+), burnt plastic a bit. Damaged the Electrical unit somehow as the EV mode is not anymore functional. Car is driving on petrol instead of...
  3. Full-Time Sport Mode?

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    Hi all. First post. Just got my 15 CT F sport last week and I have a question. Does anyone use Sport mode all of the time? If so, how did that impact your mpg? So far I only use Sport mode when accelerating at an on-ramp or at a bad intersection and just wondering if I shouldn't just leave it on...

  7. Is there any reason to not drive in Eco mode all the time if you want all the miles?

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    I am not sure I feel a difference between Normal and Eco, are there any big changes between the two? For normal commuting and driving around, unless I want to do some sporty something or another, is there any reason to ever take the car out of Eco mode?
  8. EV mode in Sports Mode

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    If I activate EV mode while in sports mode, the electric motors should stay in high output setting correct? Will the sport mode increase the threshold of when the ICE kicks in due to excessive acceleration? Or will EV mode deactivate at the same throttle opening rate regardless of mode?
  9. Sport mode toggle

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    I drive in normal mode most of the time, but once in a while when traffic is coming faster than I anticipated, the sport mode really helps. Has anyone looked at the possibility of adding a sport mode button to the steering wheel? Similar to M-mode button on BMWs. Ideally, I would like to...
  10. Auto A/C System Defaults to Recirculate Mode

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    When the Automatic A/C is turned on in Auto mode, the system defaults to Recirculated Air Mode. How can the Auto A/C mode be set to turn on in Outside Air Mode? Thanks in advance
  11. ECO Mode removing EV too soon?

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    Hi everyone, I'm picking up my CT 200h tomorrow and I can't wait! I have one question though and I'm not sure if it's my bad memory or if something is different with the car I'm buying as opposed to the one I had on demo. When I'm in ECO mode and I accelerate, it kicks me out of EV mode...
  12. Display not switching to TACH when in sport mode

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    On a couple of occasions when I go into Sport mode the display doesn't swith to "TACH" mode. It continues this way until the car is turned off and then on again. Has anyone experienced this before? TIA
  13. Is there a way to keep Sport mode on?

    Lexus CT200h Engine and Technical Discussion.
    Is there a way to keep Sport mode on after turning the car off, or do you have to select it every time? What about Eco mode? Is it the same as sport, or will it stay on? Also, is there a function that shows how many MGP you are getting while driving, or do you have to manually calculate it...

    Lexus CT200h Appearance and Body
    Hi all, Any recommendation on the new Engine? I heard that it is good to use sport mode in the first 1,000mile, which will be good for the engine. is that true? Please advise.
  15. Sports Mode Always?

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    So i think we can conclude that the majority of the drivers here get better gas mileage when driving in sports mode, and the cars alot more fun to drive in that mode. Is there a way to have sports mode on when we turn on the car or do we have to manually switch it every time we turn on the car?
  16. Sport Mode

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    My CT is 2 weeks old today, 1000+ miles so far. I drive 99% highway, and have been in normal mode 100% of the time until today. I usually cruise right at 80MPH and my gas milage has been about 39 MPG. Today I drove in sport mode my milage seemed to be better and I had better acceleration. Has...
  17. Sport Mode MPG

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    Well, I was going to report back to the "Sport Mode saves more gas" thread but somehow it was marked as "closed". Anyway, after about 5000 miles, I figured out my Normal mode MPG is around 47.x according to the car's computer. That really translates to about 44.x mpg since it is always about...
  18. ECO / Normal Mode to Sport Mode

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    Sometimes when I switch from Eco / Normal Mode to Sport Mode, my tachnometer does not change from the Hybrid graphics to the RPM graphics. Does anyone else have this issue? I assumed it is because I am already moving but it even occurs when I am at a complete stop.
  19. Possible to set system to give 650V in eco and normal mode?

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    Title says it all... Is this possible? It would definitely help me increase my MPG since my battery does not get to deplete most of the time.
  20. EV Mode disengages too soon

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    Maybe I'm doing something wrong. When I press the EV mode button, for example while driving in a parking lot, I'm finding that it beeps and cancels EV mode whenever going over about 8 MPH- and the display reads that the speed was excessive for EV mode. It happens regardless of how much the...
