Trading 2009 in for 2011
So I have been mulling this over now for several days.
I've about had it with the 2009 and it's technology or lack of. The phone and Bluetooth are circa I have no clue, but it's awful at best. Can't Bluetooth the music, it has no usb port, the call waiting is not an option the maps are circa 2008!! for something that so damn expensive it's not the diamond I thought it was.
I've found a 2011 with the Factory Rear DVD and Convenience PKG. It's got 45K on it. Not a CPO but I've got the Lexus Service Records. Last owner was **** about servicing it. I'm OK with that. It's got 5K left on the Lexus Warranty. The 45K is not a butt load of miles but it been driven over the average miles per year! For a few thousand more I can get a CPO with a 3/100 warranty.
I did notice on the service records that it's had blower motor resistor issues? Also Radio Tuner Assembly? Hum... I'm wondering if this is a known issue with the blower. I've had on several occasions the blower motor goes nuts on the 2009 and also the temp selection works it's way up to high by itself. Also when I shut the 2009 down and return to it the HVAC is off and it wont let me adjust it for a good several minutes. I've complained to Lexus about it and they say that's normal. It's not normal for the HVAC to revert back to the off position. My Infiniti does not revert to off when I shut it down. It recalls the last setting used and returns to that state. So I think the Lexus answer is total BS!
Any input? I'm open for answers!
