  1. Rust proofing treatment

    Lexus CT200h Engine and Technical Discussion.
    Hello getting a new Ct200h. I was thinking to get a rust proofing treatment that you repeat every year like I used to do on my previous car. Is it recommended on an Hybrid?

  3. Rust Specks on Car!

    Lexus CT200h Appearance and Body
    So with spring right around the corner (it was 22C here in Montreal yesterday), I decided to spray out the salt from the wheel wells, change to my summer mags/tires and give a general wash and wax to my car. Over the winter, I would put my car through a no-contact car wash about once a month...
  4. Tiny rust spots all over the car!

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    We had nice weather this past weekend up here in Southern Ontario and I decided to wash the car in the driveway (usually we go to a touchless car wash).

    Any thoughts on Rust-proofing. I know Lexus has rust penetration warranty but for years I've been sold on Krown Auto Rust-proofing but Lexus warned me not to have it done.

  6. Brake Rotors Rust Build Up

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    I've had my ct for 2-3 weeks now and the rotors seem to have a ridiculous amount of rust on them. Is this normal? I'm assuming it has something to do with the regen braking, but I didn't think it would be this bad after only a couple weeks. They don't look as bad as it did yesterday...
  7. Electronic rust control?

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    Hey Has anyone installed an anti-rust circuit on the CT? I have one on my Corolla 2002 and it has no apparent rust. The sales rep. told me they wouldn't dare install one on the CT because of the high voltage of the batteries and all the electronics in the car..... Is that bull ou what?
  8. Rust proofing from dealer

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    Hi guys, I won't be expecting to pickup the car until end on June. But wondering if anyone got or plan to get the rust proofing package? Or is there some standard rust proofing from dealer already? Thanks.
