  1. Weird “fart” noise when braking

    Lexus CT200h Engine and Technical Discussion.
    Hello all, I have a 2012 ct200 with 65k miles. Car had been amazing but recently I have been hearing a noise when braking. It almost sounds like a quick fart. Best way to explain it. It does it right before I come to a complete stop, not when I begin braking. Most times it only happens when...

  3. Test drove some CTs - weird brakes?

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    So, I am in the market to purchase a 2014+ CT. So far, I test drive 3 of them (2013 f-sport, 2015 base & 2016 f-sport). I decided to stick with the 2014+ most likely, although I have come up with a weird issue during my test drives with the 15' and 16' models. I am also looking to see if a non...
  4. Weird scratch/gouge into plastic near car door frame

    Lexus CT200h Appearance and Body
    Really have no idea how I got this ( someone with a high backpack scraped against the side of my car or something? ) Anyone have any recommendations on how I can make this scratch/gouge on my black plastic at the end of my car door frame look any better? I've thought about using Meguiar's G15812...
  5. Weird "squaking" noise when braking hard

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    Anyone heard of a similar issue or experienced this? Over the last several weeks, there is an occasional squaking noise (best description I can summon). The noise seems to be coming from the drivers side front and perhaps under the dashboard area.
  6. Weird brake noise

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    Hi all, I would like to reach out to CT users for their views and share their experiences if they are also experiencing a similar issue. Whenever I brake, at low speeds, below 12 or 10mph or even 5mph, and brake gently, there is a noise that goes like a rhythmic "tak, tak, tak". It is not the...

    Lexus CT200h Engine and Technical Discussion.
    Ok so about a month ago I'm getting in my car, start it, turn on the a/c and as soon as I put it in drive and start to move I hear this strange noise all of a sudden. It's happened a few times now since then usually will be at least a week in between before it makes the noise again. What I have...
  8. Weird Spaceship / Radiator Sound

    Lexus CT200h Engine and Technical Discussion.
    Hi everyone I just purchased a brand new Lexus CT200H Premium Package. However I keep on getting this sound often when I brake or accelerate I had a hybrid before and I know that one didn't make this sound, and when I asked the dealer they said it was normal. Which I found really weird. I have...

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    So just the other day I went into my garage and I heard a constant buzzing or humming sound coming from my car. At first I thought it was coming from outside but soon realized it was actually coming from my car. The car was completely off and had been for several hours. I decided to turn my car...
  10. My CT did somethin I g weird last night.

    Lexus CT200h Engine and Technical Discussion.
    So I had the car in sport mode as I got off the highway (i.e.; I forgot to put it back in eco as I'm going up the exit ramp). As I'm stopped at the light I hit the EV button waiting for the light to turn green. The car says "EV", the display is red and I have a tach on the left. As I get up...
  11. Weird Smell from Vents

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    Has anyone else noticed an odour coming from the A/C system when the car is hot. When i crank up the A/C when i first get into the vehicle there is this damp musty smell coming from the vents. The smell does go away after a couple of minutes. It reminds me of that smell if you leave a dish cloth...
  12. Worried, my car made a weird noise upon starting

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    This afternoon on my way out, I started my car and it made this scary grinding noise. It sounded like something was caught in being grinded. Then later, I smelled burnt plastic-like odor. I had my dad inspect it and he didn't catch anything unusual. I tested the car by turning it off and on and...
  13. Weird update... big brother?

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    So I leave my car for a week at a time at my works parking lot while I fly around the place. Thursday night I get back as usual, get in and notice the Nav is taking a while to boot up and the SAT station is re-set to the "Preview" default. I hit the voice command and it didn't want to work for...
