  1. It looked much better but only lasted about 3 months. They were expensive ones too. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. A bit of a thread resurrection here. Just updating on this. The CT is now on 103K and to this day I haven’t had that problem again. EGR system is totally clean throughout (incl throttle body). It had a major service last year in October and I’m still using injector cleaner once a month. Runs perfectly and the MPG is still staying up as best it can in this cold weather.

  3. I had LED,s in my number plate lamps. Didn’t last very long and started flickering. So back to standard now. [emoji1360] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Mines a 2011 on 103K with FSH. You don’t need to worry about the traction battery as they don’t go wrong. Mine is still perfectly healthy. I’ve had nothing go wrong with the car apart from a recall. Just be cautious if you’re buying private as anyone would do buying 2nd hand. Good luck [emoji1360] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I came from owning a Skoda Octavia diesel for 6 years to now owning a CT. its the best thing I have done and should have done years ago. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. More information needed and a video if possible? It’s probably just fuel vapour with a cold engine. These engines aren’t prone to smoking. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. One of the easiest jobs to do on these [emoji1360] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I’d love to know how they picked that up on the MOT [emoji848] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. It’s a terrible system I’ve never had any luck with it. Worked flawlessly on my Skoda and Suzuki. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. All CT,s are the same underneath. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I doubt it’s corrosion. Probably just a poor connection. Very easy to access too. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. You can do it via the Carista app and obd adapter too. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I thought this would be the outcome. I don’t think there is anything to worry about. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. My 2011 is on 103K and nothing has gone wrong. It’s passed every MOT with no advisories. Serviced every year at Lexus. I’ve only replaced the Goodyear tyres on it at 94K(they were the originals) because they were hard and noisy and a pair of wiper blades at 102K because they were smeary. It’s still on its original brakes/discs. Apparently I was told in October on its annual service that they’re only about 50% worn [emoji15] On its hybrid battery check at the same time they said it’s still perfectly healthy. Good old CT quality car [emoji4] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I hope it was in neutral when it went on the flatbed or was it driven on? I think that when you braked sharply the engine lost vacum and tried to stall but obviously these can’t so the stepper motor kicked in to bring the idle up and probably gave you the chugging rattly noise until vacum built up again hence why it was rough when trying to select any gears. Powering down does reset a lot things on the CT that’s why they make a noise after you shut them off. Don’t let this make you lose faith in it as they are a bulletproof car and very reliable. Mines a 2011 SE L Premier with 103K and I’ve never had anything go wrong at all. Only 2 recalls and I get it serviced at Lexus Poole every year. Passed all it’s MOT,s with no advisories. Good luck.
