I know theres a few members here that are still waiting on a CT. Maybe we can all help each other out and post findings of CTs in your particular area. I have found a few, just not the color combo I want or package. I will start with posting 4 in the Florida area.

JM Lexus, Miami
3 available no-navi red,silver,black


Lexus of Kendall, Miami FL
1 black on black with navi

I've called every dealer in FL, I dont mind a little road trip to pick one up but just none that matched my liking. Although Im not being very picky I just want a light colored exterior with navi. Good luck to all. They are out there:D

No cars with navi in northeast- think I've checked with every dealer from NJ to Massachusetts. I'm hearing from June to fall for cars with navi.

A dealer who didn't lie?

I purchased my CT200h in mid March, Starfire Pearl with Navigation. Color wise it wasn't my first choice but the dealer said that the future shipments would not have navigation. He had this one on the lot. Since the Tsunami had just hit Japan I figured it was better to get the one with Navigation in the Starfire Pearl rather than wait. I ended up really liking the Starfire Pearl as it is has a very nice look. Honestly I would have liked some blue model choices but that was not an option this year.
The ones with Navigation will return but it looks like a wait of several months.
Maybe my dealer was being honest.

I don't think that's true. this quick search on cars.com shows at least 3-4 with Nav (all the one's selling MSRP >$35k) within 50 miles of Northern NJ:

One thing to note on this - I have contacted a dealer using online search tools and the one I was interested in had already been sold. So it looks like the dealers are not always updating their online postings in a timely manner. Especially since they told me the one I was looking for was already sold 6 days ago when I contacted them - and it is still showing up today on cars.com and autotrader.com.

Somewhat frustrating to think you've found what you are looking for, only for them to have one with 2k miles and over sticker price available. So take what you see online with a grain of salt.

i agree - you have to call to follow up and it can be hit or miss. however, this is exactly how i found my CT so to say that NO dealer on the East Coast from MA to NJ has a CT (with Nav) in stock (which is what the poster had said) is not likely to be true.

Our online system "update" can take anywhere from 4- to 72 hours to update. Other dealerships leave their "inventory" up just to get you to call....

I received a call yesterday from Magnussen Lexus in Fremont, CA. They have a Silver with Black interior for $32,xxx. At that price, its most likely a premium with no Nav.

How is your experience with that dealership? They are closest to me and will eventually be in the market in a few months.

I actually did not buy from them, so no experience. I just gave my number for a call back, they are eager to sell, because the sales man "Max" leaves me a VM every time he gets a car available.

I hope my local dealers have at least one in stock. I'd love to test drive one. I do believe I only have one Lexus dealer in the area, unless I go many, many miles away.

It is just wrong that one dealer has 6 CTs available for immediate purchase while many dealers have 25+ people on a waiting list. :(

that's where it pays to live near a highly populated city/area.
