Don't buy in snow country!
By slimpiks on


2012 Lexus CT 200h 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Great dry road car and fun to drive.
In our first snow of season, unable to move due to vehicle control system. At stop sign on snow/ice, car would not move and had to back out of traffic situation. Talked to Lexus dealer and no lock out for vehicle control system, which is on other Lexus models. Had to trade car for Camry, which has the vehicle control system lock out. Camry performs much better on snow/ice. Buy a Camry, which has almost same expected mileage.

Best Features

Great looking and fun to drive on dry roads. Good gas mileage. Nice interior but limited storage. Great road car but a little choppy due to short wheelbase.

Worst Features

Car should have lock out for vehicle control system. Also needs cup holders in back seat and more storage in front seat area.
