I have had my CT200h for 6 weeks now and it is absolutely wonderful. Bumper to bumper everything is great. Considering all the electrical components I think Lexus did a fantastic job.
The other new cars out, the Nissan Leaf and Chevy Volt are not faring as well in the problem department.
I hope all the owners are enjoying the car as much as I am.
One thing Lexus did not tell you. The car actually gets above 50 mpg in mixed driving, not 40-42mpg!

I agree, no problems so far. As for the MPG, the wife does alot of freeway driving, MPGs are settling in at 41-43 mpg. Definitely happier than filling the SUV for $80+.

Im currently in the 47 mpg range in eco mode cruise set at 56 mph and in the slow lane watching my rearview mirror making sure i dont get run into !!! I really been having fun just driving to work and back no rush no hard starts or nothing. My former vehicle 2008 chevy tahoe cost me at 4.07 a gallon 97 dollars every 12 days to drive and thats just to and from work with no extra driving around needless to say im saving lots of cash now and very happy about it

Although I am close to the I-95 super highway I avoid it as much as possible. As such I use back roads getting to and from work where the speed is 45mph or less. I get to use the EV feature with downhills and regenerative braking so maybe that is helping also. Thus no 65-70 mph drives. Perhaps that it why my gas mileage has been better than average. My cumulative average as per the onboard computer is 47.9 mpg over 1600 miles driven.

I will not push the car to 80mph which is what most people like to drive despite a 65mph limit here. So interstate driving can be treacherous around here. Plus my one windshield rock ding came on I-95 years ago. You never know what can kicked up with 4 lanes of high speed traffic.

$4.00 a gallon gas doesn't seem to slowing many people down surprisingly like it did 2-3 years ago when gas was as expensive.
This time the Hummers and GM Denali monsters are mostly gone and the trend is towards smaller vehicles going faster.

Yes I disagree, 2800 miles and I have a blowout, a chunk of the tread not sidewall and I'm being told that they use tires that the manufacture will not warranty, and the tires are not covered under the Lexus warrantee either. 47MPG does not cover $250 every 3000 miles for tires.

I disagree. I have a strange vibrating noise coming from the driver's side door/seat belt area that I noticed a few days after I bought the car. Took it to Longo and they tried to fix it by adding insulating material in the door but the noise is still there... I am bringing it back in next Saturday to have them give it another try.

By now I've learned that no "new" car is ever perfect. There is always "something" wrong with it even when it is new.
