Second major update:

I was waiting for my mechanic to finish all his research before he calls me, before I ask about the head gasket. Turns out he checked everything else first, because he just...

I'd say we're good as long as we don't recalled. I'm not aware of any 2014 recalls on the CT. I checked my VIN and I'm good.

I looked at the link, and yeah, it does look like a head gasket would be responsible for all of this, except for the throttle body stuff. My throttle body was cleaned two times by my Lexus dealer...

Part of the reason why you're only getting one response so far is because you haven't given us enough time yet to get on here and post. Remember that there aren't that many CT owners compared to any...

My mechanic decided to open up the engine (took the valve cover off), curious to see what's going on before tackling the issue (in case there's another reason for what's happening):...

No problem at all!

Yes, the loss of braking when braking over a rough patch of road is a well-known issue among most owners. I still don't understand why Toyota let that one slip through.

I've had them happen in all sorts of temperatures. From 30s all the way to 70s. I think cold soak might just mean the engine has been off for a long time (like overnight). It was in the 40s / 50s...

Small update:

Dropped by my mechanic's shop today. He was out, but they took a look with their scanner. Engine error codes 302 and 304, I believe. Cylinders 2 and 4 are misfiring. There is a...

I agree with Dave Mac. Most reputable body shops should be able to fix this easily for not too much money. That's the route I'd take considering it's not a very important or obvious part of the car....

1. I also think that if you buy the car, this won't matter, as it doesn't affect the dealer's price. If you return the lease, they have to charge you for any work they have to do to restore the...

Since you bought it with Carvana, at least you can return the car within 7 days of delivery if you're not happy. I highly recommend you drive the car on the highway a lot to test out its passing...

All I can say is, I sure hope this wasn't a car pulled from the Harvey disaster we had a few months back. You should have a mechanic look over the car on a lift and look for flooding signs. The...

This car is very-low maintenance. Most of the parts should last well beyond 100k miles. Especially since, as nacke pointed out, they are all electric. No belts driven off the engine to power...
