LEXUS CT B tranmission mode and engine noise

My wife and I over the weekend drove from Whidbey Island Wash to Yakima and back over the Cascade Mountains. (With some care even in Sport mode sometimes we got 50.3 MPG overall indicated by ScanGauage and the in-car AVG gauge which made me happy.) On the way down some of the steep mountain roads home the battery state of charge was full and I needed some braking action. I tried the B transmission

LEXUS CT The CT is pretty darn fast in sports mode

So I am curious to people who may know this... The claim that the ct goes from 0-60 in about 9 seconds is that in sports mode or normal mode If 0-60 in 9 seconds is for normal mode does anyone know how long it takes to get to 60 mph in sports mode

I have this vision of American freeways and all the cars are driving from point A to point B in a series of 0-60mph acceleration runs. By the way do you guys talk about fast cars and quick cars Fast cars usually have a big powerful engine and rapid acceleration times. Quick cars (like the CT200h) are usually compact smaller engined cars with more modest acceleration. On an interstate run in Australia

LEXUS CT Ct200h mpg - What is your best average

Hi Everyone I Picked up my brand new Ct200 Advance last week and have already clocked 356 miles I absolutely love this car For the first few days I was averaging about 42mpg but since then I have been using a combination of the EV mode and Sport modes and today I reached an average of 60.1mpg (see attached screenshot). What are other people averaging

People it all depending how you drive. If you want to drive on Sport mode why to buy CT200h Pointless. Better to buy sport version of Audi A3 TDi. You will get speed power and good MPG. CT200h is good if you dont care much about speed but more about economy. I get 60 MPG usually. But on motorway I drive about 60- 65 Mph. If you want to drive 70- 80 Mph then quiet obvious you get low MPG. U dont use hybrid at all only petrol engine. Sent from AutoGuide.com Free App

LEXUS CT Louder engine noise at 60mph

Sorry if someone has brought this up already but i have a 2011 CT200h at 26k miles now and since November 2012 i have noticed that the engine noise seems louder everytime i go over 60 mph ive had no mods or repairs done to the car. gas mileage has not changed. it is not ridiculously loud but it is definitely a change from before (my wife concurs). does anyone have any similar experience with this and if so was there a solution to be found many thanks for any help.

Remember that our CT has one of the most silent motors under 60 mph and also we get used of the motor stopping many times a day (complete silence). So when in the highway motor keeps pushing all time making it even more obvious. I compared with a Db meter to a new petrol BMW 1 and our CT is almost 20 db quiter on higway ) Think of putting sport mode before accelerating to more than 60 mph it has a much smoother sound.

The new lexus GS 350 surprised us all with an unexpected combination of luxury and honest-to-goodness heart. The new Sports Exec.

I didnt expect that at all particularly from a company who apart from a couple of loony moments seemed more interested in building those heartless hybrids than soulful sporting saloons.

LEXUS CT Mileage And Range

Hi all Just a question. I have been getting consistently about 750Km and that will usually take me close to 0 (zero) on the remaining range indicator. When I go fill up I only fill up about 35L which means I should still have around 10L (45L tank) left which should allow me to do around 200km (based on average 4.8L100km usage) past the 0 mark on the trip computer. Has anyone tried driving past the 0 mark on the trip computer range indicator

Running the petrol in the tank low - shouldnt be an issue. I think the sediment that everyone talks about is an issue for old cars and old petrol pumps. Saying that though Ive never had chance to look inside a petrol tank. If anyone knows people who has switched a petrol tank or otherwise seen one come off a car ask em what the condition of the tank was. Modern fuel injection usually works off a ring

LEXUS CT Australia made a mistake on fuel help

Hello fellow CT owner I live in Melbourne Australia and yesterday I made a mistake of filling the oil tank with BP 91 unleaded not the recommended 95 unleaded. Im feeling bad. Could any of the Australian car owners here give me some advice on what damage could occur Thanks

I am not Australian either but I can assure that nothing will happen to your CTs beloved engine The faithful 2ZR family Atkinson engine was designed with apettite for low octane gasoline. This Chinese made engine is quite robust and very durable it is the powerplant of choice for smaller Toyotas exported to third world countries. BTW I understood that you filled the gas tank with BP 91 unleaded Not

understood that you filled the gas tank with BP 91 unleaded Not your engine block where you add motor oil If you did fill your engine block with BP 91 gasoline you have to flat bed the vehicle to a shop and flush the gasoline (petrol) out of your engine block immediately and you must not start the engine. Please reference your source for your assertion that Chinese made engines are installed in lexusToyota

Dont you mean filling the Gas or petrol tank Oil is for engine lubrication or is it just that you Aussies do refer to the fuel tank as an oil tank Oh and I know youre not a 3rd world country.

NOT made in China but Japan so forget all about that nonsense. Secondly most cars these days are fitted with electronic sensors that adjust the timing within a range to adjust to different grades of petrol. For example in the outback you might have no option but to fuel your car with lower grade petroleum. Finally to properly allay your concerns why dont you speak to the service manager at any lexus

LEXUS CT Lexus ct300h

Hey Guys So Ive been looking at the lexus ct200h for a while now and it looks like I will be getting a new car pretty soon (in the next couple of months). Now although I like the ct200h I would prefer something with a bit more oomph. I dont need a sports car but something that would able to keep up with...say...a camry I am upgrading from a civic hybrid and that car is beyond slow. Especially when

With respect Im not sure myself if about two seconds on a 0-60m.p.h. time is all that important to me. Ive owned a few cars over about fifty years and Ive never once been inclined to measure even one of them against the stopwatch. But I digress. People within lexus have spoken of a CT300 as they have different body styles but there seems little hard evidence. The CT was designed primarily for a European

LEXUS CT Performance chip

Since Im new to the forum...I may have missed it or not sure how to search it But has anyone installed or have knowledge of a performance chip for the CT I actually noticed one that was advertised on this site claiming improved hp and increased gas milage without altering the ECUwarranty.

Lol - keep it civil people Performance chip - a chip change type system does exist called the PICC Frequently Asked Questions But I wouldnt recommend it. Its to go with a Plug In Hybrid conversion kit for the Prius which does stuff like allow EV only mode at up to 70mph and almost certainly lots of other little changes. It might even unlock the 90bhp engine 74bhp motor is limited to 134bhp combined

LEXUS CT sport mode saves more gas

After reading a members post last month claming that sport mode saves more gas I tried that out for a month and got an answer. I live in Toronto and we have no hill here . Everyday I cover around 103km (99km highway 4km local). In the morning I drive at 70kmh on 2km local road then 40kmh to 60kmh on 22km highway (due to traffic jam ) and 120kmh for the rest 27.5km highway. In the evening traffic is

I like to have enough reserve power available to allow me to do say 40-60 or 50-70 without changing gear or flooring it. Normal doesnt really have that Lean-On power but Sport definitely does. The gearbox is slightly more responsive especially when combined with the different throttle pedal - throttle input profile. Motor power - 650V is available for Normal and Eco at full throttle (theres a lexus

LEXUS CT 1.8L Hybrid

So I see they are telling everyone this will be a 1.8L hybrid. Any talks of them maybe makea little larger of a engine I think the 1.8 will be great But this car is really sporty looking a little more pep would be nice.

Here in the Netherlands lexus stated it will have a CO2 output of 99 mgkm. For us thats important for tax reasons (14% instead of 25%). That means the petrol engine almost certainly will be the same as the Prius one (100 hp). But they also state it will have 2 litre performance (about 150 hp). The only possibility I see is a larger electric motor than the 80 hp one in the Prius.

LEXUS CT What Octane gasoline are you using on your CT200h

Lets vote just simply say what grade of gasoline you are using on your CT200h 91 here

95 RON here which is the standard for the UK. We have the option at most garages to use 98 or 99 RON (Super unleaded) but in my experience all that achieves is A bigger petrol bill (approx 10p per litre) Lumpy running for the first 10 miles or so (the engine management adjusting to the higher octane) No improvement in power or mpg My advice - stick to a garage you trust for consistency in the petrol

LEXUS CT Possible CT buyer with a few questions

Hey all Ive always liked the CT200h and recently drove one while visiting the local lexus dealer (to drivebuy an IS250 actually). Needless to say Im now thinking about buying the CT instead. I have a few questions though 1) My commute to work is very short (1.5 miles each way). I know this is harder on the car as the engine doesnt warm up but I drive longer distances on a regular basis. What kind of

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS V 6382 Hi question Engine upgrade

Hi folks I just signed up on this site must say it is much useful info here Im another newbie and I have a question. I own a Vito 110 CDI. It has quite low milage only a few 10 thousand miles. BUT I hate the lack of power from that 110 engine. For a 2.2 liter it is pretty bad. I now have access to a 280 V6 with 176 bhp. This is the petrol engine.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS M W163 01ml320 is this a fair price

I finally found another white ml320 with the sport pkg. Its a new car trade at an Infinity dealer. One owner lease trade in and always in Florida no New Orleans floods ..etc. Anyway it has AMG wheels and 45k miles and they dropped price down to 19900.00 from 24.900.00. Im thinking that 18000 would be a fair price. What do you guys think

they do tend to be more problematic when new then go for a while without any problems. Of course later in life they tend to develop more problems but there does seem to be a good period of worry-free driving for the most part. If you donĂ‚„t have the mechanical inclination and donĂ‚„t want to be hit with the rare but ridiculously expensive repair then by all means either buy a warranty or a new lexus.

Id second what pardo says. We have a great car but it could do with more grunt in the engine. The motor has enough power to let the CT do electric only at 45mph on the flat but the engine can struggle to maintain 70 on its own without using more throttle than is economical. However - the brain behind the CVT gearbox makes up for having less power available by making the most of what it has. Sport mode

BMW SERIES 6 High engine load can cause damage to catalytic converters - Warning on iDrive

Hello all Hope somebody can shed some light on this issue. I havent been using my car much for the past week as Ive not been working. My car has mostly been sat around. I gave the car a 2 day detail just getting it up to my standards as Ive just recently purchased her. I switched the car on today to move it after cleaning the interior the engine was cold as I had not moved it since yesterday morning.

Both these things are worth doing anyway not expensive and can make a real difference if you have any kind of rough or lumpy running. Finally if it persists and you do have high mileage consider changing the fuel filter it should be changed at some point in time anyway again easy to do just a bit smelly with the petrol that naturally comes out when you strip it out Hope these things help or at least worth considering even for prevention..... Thank you for the advice matey Where can I get this BG44K cleaner from How often is the fuel filter meant to be changed and how do you carry out this change Dont think mine has ever been done Im guessing this BG44K is just like the Redex where you pour it into the the fuel tank full of fuel Quote Originally Posted by mayhs Ah thanks for the advice will buy a can of cleaner when I get a chance and report back.

Currently running perfect but will run the cleaner through the system anyway and see how it goes. Could do without any surprise expenses just before Christmas I will probably do the same myself Lets hope none of us face a large expense Quote Originally Posted by 645333 BG44k should be used every 20k or so on mine it did improve running even consumption but knowing the injectors and tops of the pistons got a decent clean makes it worthwhile just for the record lexus Bentley etc. put this stuff in at every service......

LEXUS CT Very disappointed with gas consumption

We have driven our brand new 2012 CT200 for 400Km a 5050 mix of city and highway driving. The vehicle was delivered with a full tank of gas. The fuel gauge shows 34 of the fuel has been used which based on a 45L tank would mean an average gas consumption of 8.4L100Km or almost 83% more than the advertised average gas consumption of 4.6L100Km. The display on the instrument panel shows an average gas

My CT is coming up to 3000 miles driven. Heres a question no matter how many miles the range indicator says I have left on my current tank and no matter where the gauge is pointing I cant seem to fill up with more than 7.7 gallons of gas before its full. I mean....its great on the wallet considering I can use 87 octane gas and its range always resets to 400 miles after every fill up but if the tank

In theory it shouldnt affect the calculation at all. I dont know the exact sum our CTs use but it seems daft to do anything except Avg MPG How many miles have I done (from the odometer) divided by How much petrol have I squirted into the engine (from the engine management) The cruising range calc will be looking at MPG multiplied How much fuel do I think is in the tank but I dont think the Avg

LEXUS CT Can you add TURBO to a hybrid vehicle

Has this been done Is it possible

Yes it is possible to put a turbo on a hybrid. Theoretically it should not affect the hybrid in a too negative way. A turbo will increase some pollution true but with more torque coming from the petrol engine it is possible to charge the battery quicker. Good configuration will be required though.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS GL X164 Is this newb going to regret buying used

Contemplating picking up a 2007 GL450 with about 50K on it. Am I going to regret this purchase because of repair shop visits and frequent tire and brake changes Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

IMHO forget the lexus and give the CDI a try - if the experience of any of us is anything to go by you will never look back. Although a good price on a V8 petrol GL might be tempting today resale may take a substantial dive in the longer term with fuel prices rising... Although the MB V8 is certainly a beautiful engine

LEXUS CT Sports Mode Always

So i think we can conclude that the majority of the drivers here get better gas mileage when driving in sports mode and the cars alot more fun to drive in that mode. Is there a way to have sports mode on when we turn on the car or do we have to manually switch it every time we turn on the car

Best all-time consumption 64.4 mpg on standard unleaded petrol (95) The fuel economy in my CT seems to be going down as time goes on.

Im not driving it noticeably different since picking it up 2 months ago. Its in ECO mode probably 95% of the time. Does the

Lol Jimbo - me too. Ive gone from a 28mpg (UK) in town car to one that does 46-48 in stop start. Thats how most of my trips happen. Ive gone from 36mpg on a run to 50 and was seeing 70mpg on the computer when in a 40mph speed limit roadworks zone that went for maybe 20 miles after filling up. And thats before mentioning chassis response and responsiveness of the engineMotorCVT combination. The 0 to

LEXUS CT ct200h to only have 187 horsepower

I just read on AutoGuide.com that the CT200h is probably only going to have about 187 horsepower... because it is using the Prius setup (which makes 134hp in the Prius) ... is this true WHY make such a beautiful car and then give it such a wimpy engine

Why is 187 Hp wimpy I dont think you get the concept of this car.. I dont think it will get 187 hp tough since the Prius has only 134. The seperate engines of the Prius are 100 hp petrol and 80 hp electric. Making 180 hp..

This platform is focused on providing a customized and efficient driving experience. The current X5 is based on the tried and tested E-series platform. This is considered by some purists as the last of the true BMWs. The lexus

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS M W164 Oil change intervals--Really

Ok Ive done some searching on the forums about this and while there are some threads that come up most of them are more about the quality of oil and the filters and the ever debated oil wars. What my question is more about is - is everyone on board with 12-14k miles oil change intervals Is there something different in the oil they use or is this just the marvel of MB engineering to be able to go that

impossible. Also Asian car companies subscribe to very low standard oil specifications due to the different markets they build for thus conventional generic low quality oils are a criteria for their engines.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS C II 203 Real or fake C30 CDI AMG

Ive never ever heard of a AMG diesel. I saw this e-Bay ad and had to ask it looks nice but I have my doubts. httpcgi.ebay.comebaymotorsMERCE...00109660QQrdZ1

Now come on guys... Firstly you cant get anywhere near the same economy from a petrol engine that you can from the new CDIs. For example try getting 1000 miles from a petrol engined S-Class (you can from a CDI). You should stop reading all the propaganda US fuel companies put out about diesel fuel. The new M class CDI is far more economical than even the lexus Hybrid (not to mention a hell of a lot

BMW X5 E70 Feeler 2010 X5d 38k miles

Looking to sell my wifes X5d due to a recent job loss. Not desperate to sell as its paid for but would like to get into something a little more economical. Its highly optioned clean carfax and clean title. I am fairly particular about my cars and treat this one to regular oil changes (every 5k - 7k) and a full Zaino application at least twice a year. It is truly MINT... There is not even a door ding.
