Hello from North Carolina,

I recently graduated from a small school and began my career in health care a little over a year ago. I am commuting 50 miles round trip daily along i95 and needed to trade in my 05 Honda CR-V for something with better gas mileage. I found a used 2012 CT200h, fully loaded, at a steal price from the local Honda dealership, with 28,500 miles on it. I knew I needed to spoil myself a little bit, and bought the car on Monday after test driving it Saturday. I am in love with it! Still getting used to the SUV-to-car transition, but shouldn't take long. Also love the self-competition to get the best gas mileage around town and while on my work commute. Sad to say goodbye to my 05 CR-V that was so good to me the last 8 years through high school and college, but now all grown up, and I am ecstatic with a car that looks more professional than any on the road!

Welcome to the ct200h family!! I too went from a full sized SUV to my ct and, yes, it takes a bit getting used to such a smaller and less powerful vehicle, but it's a blast to drive and I've gone from 12 mpg to 40 mpg!!! AND, my first fillup was $19 vrs $75...what a difference. Enjoy your new car!!!

Congrats on your career start and new Lexus. I just got mine too, transitioned from Prius so not so much shock except enjoying much better sound system and ride quality.

Thanks everyone for the love.
Filled up for the first time yesterday (dealer did full fillup when I bought the car).

401.6 miles on 8.312 gallons. If I remember math correctly - that is 48.3 MPG!!

And a very exciting change to spend less than $30 especially with summer gas prices on the rise. I know the gas light hadn't come on yet, but I wanted to go ahead and fill up anyways. Very easy to hit 500 miles on one small tank.
