  1. New Hybrid Owner - Basic Servicing Questions

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    Hey all, I recently purchased a 2014 CT in April that has some nice F Sport exterior additions, but is really just a base model with navigation. I purchased it from a Lexus dealership, so it was serviced prior to buying. It's currently sitting at about 64k miles and I drive it daily for my...

  3. Please explain to me if this is normal for newer cars to do in snow

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    Hey all, I'm a new owner of a CT200H. I recently bought a 2015 base model in October 2017 and absolutely love it. This is my first vehicle newer than 2005, so some of the newer technologies are unfamiliar to me. I had one problem with the CT and I'd like to have a better understand of why this...

  7. Driving in snow condition

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    I live in Wilmington DE and very familiar with driving in snow... Not sure how well CT 200h would behave in snow. Current Rav4 and Mercury Villager van handle snow well around here. My MB E-320 rear-wheel car is the worse one, even with at least 150-lb sand bags in the trunk during winter...
  8. Winter wheel covers?

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    It's getting near that time of year in Toronto... That dreaded time to take off my OEM rims and replace them with ugly snows on steelies. I'm really regretting not just buying a second set of alloy rims, but I'm half way through my lease, so it doesn't make sense now. Do any of you guys put...

  10. Ground clearance - snow & icy mush?

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    Hi all, I've read through a lot of reviews and posts about how the car performs in winter and snow, and it appears that when good winter tires are installed, the car can be safely driven. However, I haven't seen anyone mention specifically about the ground clearance on mushy roads. I've only...

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    Hi Guys - I am new to the forum, and am likely going to be leasing a new CT200h this week. Do any of you drive yours in the winter? What's it like driving a hybrid in the snow? Does it affect fuel economy? Thanks!
  14. How is driving in snow with good winter tires?

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    Hi, I have looked around the forum and found various (usually bad) comments on driving behavior in snow conditions with the OEM tires but did not find answer to this question. I am considering buying the CT200h but I am concerned with the behavior of this car in snow conditions. I live in...
  15. Snow tires/summer tires/gas consumption

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    I can confirm that by just changing my winter tires back to summer tires, gas consumption got down by 10-12%. This is from yesterday to today, similar wather, nothing special. I got back to 4.8 to 5l/100km. One year has gone by since a purchased the CT, and I'm still more than happy.

  17. 205/50/17 Snow tires on stock wheels?

    Lexus CT200h Suspension/Wheels/Tires
    Hi Guys I am looking for winter tires and was wondering if anyone has tried 205/50/17 tires on the stock wheels? The overall diameter is just slightly larger which should not be a problem at all, and the tire is slightly thinner which also shouldn't be a problem. But do you think this would...
  18. Original Tires Suck in Snow

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    I was up at Killington Vt this past weekend. Very cold but car had no problems other than traction is horrible with stock tires on snow covered roads. Time to buy a snow tire / rim package. Also the LCD display didn't like the cold weather. The arrows depicting the power flows lost their...
  19. Pushing yourself out of a snow bank??

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    After driving manual transmissions for 30 years, I switched to the CT 200 hybrid. I'm still getting used to how the car handles in the snow, and I got stuck in one of those ridges created by the snow ploughs at the end of my alley. With a stick shift, I could leave the car in neutral, turn the...
  20. Snow Tires for CT200h?

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    I live in Oregon and while it does not snow frequently here in Portland I'd like to be prepared and get some snow tires. I've had a hard time finding anything that is reasonably priced. The two that I have found are both Michelin - the xIce2 and Primacy Alpin. The xIce2 is not a high...
