    Lexus CT200h Engine and Technical Discussion.
    I have a 2011 CT200h and it has been a great car until this year when I found out I am having internal oil consumption. I have had to add oil several times and have found out that this is a very costly issue from a certified technician and a Lexus Dealership. Has anyone else had oil consumption...
