  5. Can Anyone Help With This Rattle Sound Mystery?

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    Well, I had no luck at the Toyota dealership and they wanted $500 to diagnose the problem (via removing panels) so I thought I’d try my luck here. I’ve owned my Ct200h since 2011. I took the car in for an alignment and Lexus airbag recall one weekend last year and now there has been a consistent...

    Lexus CT200h Engine and Technical Discussion.
    I don't notice the brakes failing at all, just this weird clicking noise when i press the brakes. I've always kind of thought the brakes were a little soft, but that's been consistent. Now I just hear this clicking noise on the front left side. Anyone ever hear of this before?

    My 2011 CT200 all of a sudden has no sound out of the radio…no sound with Bluetooth connection of phone or radio. And, no sound from AM/FM not just streaming.

  14. Odd buzzing sound after hours

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    Hours after parking my CT in the garage (2012, recertified after a lease, I've owned it for two weeks), I heard a buzzing sound. Couldn't figure what it was for the life of me. Google suggests it was the gas vapor purge pump. Buzzing sound when engine is off - Club Lexus Forums
