Auto Express's reliability ratings are based on our Driver Power survey of over 30,000 car owners. Ratings are the average for all owners of this car who responded. Individual owners’ ratings and comments appear below.

Up 14 places to 37th overall after a debut 2014 Driver Power performance in 51st place, the Lexus CT is settling into mid-life nicely. As with other models in the Lexus portfolio, however, it’s a mixed bag of highs and lows according to owners. So, while reliability, build quality, ease of driving and running costa all score very well indeed, the hatchback is let down by starkly contrasting ride quality, performance and practicality qualities – all panned by owners, relatively speaking.

Never had a problem. Had expected better fuel consumption but most of my journeys are short or on motorways so petrol engine not so efficient. only had one service and have incurred no other repairs in 18 months.

No problems whatsoever. Not as good as it apparently should be but still good considering the type of driving I do.

I have never had a problem. Mpg is good - not as good as provided data but that is regrettably to be expected.
