Default I bid farewell, after 2.5 great years!

It's a bitter sweet moment for me to let go of the CT in just 4 days in exchange for a 2014 IS F-Sport.

The CT hands down has been tied with my Gen 2 RX as the best vehicle(s) I've ever owned, and I've owned several...

What's not to like about the CT - Its striking and unique design, peppy smooth hybrid powertrain and tranny, superb fuel economy (averaged 5.1 L/100km), compact easy-to-maneuver size, sporty handling, decent quiet and comfortable ride, and bullet-proof reliability. And above all, my operating costs, as typical Toyota/Lexus, were simply fuel and and three oil changes. That's it.

As a farewell to the CT, I gave her a meticulous in/out wash and wax today and although she will be missed, I look forward to having a complete Lexus F-Sport family this Thursday.

For those who want to check out my IS build: http://www.clublexus.com/forums/is-t...ng-thread.html

Enjoy your CTs!

I very highly considered trading in my CT for a 14 IS350 FSport.... but gas mileage held me back!

Congratulations on getting a 2014 IS F Sport. Sad to see the CT go but you had a great time with it. I still have my CT since March of 2011. Thinking of getting the 2014 GX 460. Have fun with the IS...

I know and it will be missed for that, but thankfully I put less than 300 km (200 miles) per week so the fuel dent in my wallet will be manageable even with premium fuel.

Same here, was one of the first to own the CT back in March 2011! Good luck with your future GX decision.
