Default Any CT's with High Miles?

I just hit 70,000 trouble free miles and will be changing my oil and oil filter today. I'm still running on the same brake pads which should last me to 100,000 miles as well as the spark plugs.

The only things that have been replaced are two rear shocks, all four tires, replaced the air filter with a K&N air filter, replaced the cabin air filter, changed my oil and oil filter every 5,000 miles, changed front and rear wiper blades, changed the transmission fluid and brake fluid. Lexus also changed the passenger interior door handle panel under warranty.

It's great that the CT doesn't have a serpentine (drive) belt, one less part to replace from time to time. Since the CT has a timing chain instead of a timing belt there is no need to replace as often.

Are there any other CT members with high miles? Curious to hear what has been replaced and if your CT has been trouble free for the most part with no major issues.

I look forward to another 70,000 trouble free miles...

My 75000 miles service is coming up soon. I replaced the 4 tires (with the same OEM tires) at 65000 or 70000 miles (don't remember which). It has been trouble free since I bought it. Oh and I changed the front wiper blades.

I thought this car had one of those sealed transmissions with fluid that is not supposed to be changed..

No?

Why oil ever 5,000? Are you using standard non synthetic?

At 70,000 you havent done anything with the radiator yet?

Yes, it is a sealed transmission but the fluid should be changed every 60K miles. Our transmissions generate lots of heat and can wear out the fluid.

I do use synthetic oil (Castrol Edge 0W-20). I've always changed my oil every 5K miles and I'm used to it, been doing ever since my first Lexus back in 1996. Also it's easier to keep track when I need to change it.

Haven't done anything to the radiator yet. It's still the original radiator. As for the fluid Lexus replaced it not too long ago. There was a TSB and I brought the CT in and Lexus replaced the fluid at no charge.

I'm also glad there are no serpentine belts to change and as for the timing belt there is none. Our CT has a timing chain.
