Another ct200H driver reported a problem with the center console lid not closing properly due to the latch stuck in the open position. Same issue on my 2012 ct200H. Would be nice on a Lexus to have that problem researched and fixed... and let Lexus pay for the repair, not the owner. Problems of this type are more characteristic of economy vehicles... is Lexus an economy car"???"

The passenger side glass on my 2012 Ct exploded for no particular reason a few days ago. I was on the highway doing about 65 mph and I suddenly heard a loud 'boom' and the side window was gone... completely gone. Nothing hit my car, no rocks, no bullets... no bricks. There was no one beside me and I was on I-81. Had I over-reacted, I could have crashed the car. Had there been a passenger in the seat, she would have been severely cut from the flying glass shards at 65 mph. I experienced cuts on my right hand and arm. Lexus, in a completely disappointing show of customer "service" is refusing to pay for it under warranty. I am not the only one with a Ct that has had this happen. Do a google search and you'll find a few other cases on other forums. I point you to this wikipedia article (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/spontaneous_glass_breakage) which clearly states this phenomenon is due to manufacturing defects in the glass. I suggested that Lexus corporate send the glass back to the vendor for analysis and they refused! they simply could care less. I will never buy another Toyota product again and I warn all readers to be very careful.
