  1. Anyone have issues with the CVT transmission?

    Lexus CT200h Engine and Technical Discussion.
    Has anyone had any serious transmission issues with their CT 200? Ok so CVT transmission are knowen to not last long and end up needing to be replaced way too soon. It happned to me with my 2009 Nissan Versa, which also has a CVT. If you look up CVT transmissions you will find articles stating...
  2. Went full synthetic for the transmission

    Lexus CT200h Engine and Technical Discussion.
    Hey guys I read forum after forum and decided Toyota WS transmission fluid is not the best. I went and bought Valvoline max life synthetic ATF. I did the work myself and filled it up with the new fluid. The old fluid was solid black at 33,300 miles. I was happy with the job until I read a forum...
  3. Transmission in "Sport" and "Eco"

    Lexus CT200h Engine and Technical Discussion.
    If car is switched to "Sport", it reverts back to "Normal" after car is turned off and back on. However, if car is switched to "Eco" and car is turned off and on, it stays in "Eco". Does anyone know why this is and can the car be reprogrammed so it stays in "Sport"?
  4. Electronic "Brake" transmission

    Lexus CT200h Engine and Technical Discussion.
    Good morning all. I'm finding it convenient to use the "brake" position on the transmission here in the Denver area BUT there are times that I forget to move the transmission back to the "D" position. Am I doing any damage to anything by accelerating while still in the brake position? Thanks for...

  6. CVT Transmission

    Lexus CT200h Engine and Technical Discussion.
    Hi all, In the documentation it talks about the CT-200 having a CVT transmission. The Nissan Rogue I had before had one but I though the CT-200 only ever got power to the wheels from the electric motor. Is this true or does it have a CVT powered by the engine or the motor/battery? Just...
  7. New owners as of yesterday; a question on transmission, if we may.

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    My wife and I are very happy with our CT. She said she noticed a slight "surge and release" while she was driving it home (like pushing the accelerator and releasing - even though she wasn't). She thinks it may have just been when she was in Sport mode, but isn't certain. It did happen...
  8. Possible brake or transmission? problem.

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    First of all, I'm not anywhere near to be mechanically knowledgeable and I just want to ask your opinions on this problem I have. I'm driving this CT200h from Jul 11 and this certain noise issue started to happen since late Nov 11. I've noticed this issue 4-5 times total and taken it to the...
