  1. Thanks for all of the replies. I have decided to buy out the finance and keep the car for another coupe of years and then see what is on offer then.
  2. Hi I currently own a 2015 NX300h Luxury which I bought via a PCP almost three years and is now it is decision time so I have a few questions. The first option is just to hand over the car and walk away. I dont fancy this as I like Lexus (the current one is my 3rd) and am minded to continue with them The second is to finance the existing car either via a loan or a further PCP. Any thoughts in this? The car has only doen 33k miles so there should be plenty of life in it yet but what are your experiences of the NX and service costs once it passes 5 years old? The third option
  3. I have my NX300h Luxury now and so far it is very good. I will just have to get used to the smaller size compared to the RX and definitely the reduced power in comparison. My question to the Forum regards the playing of music from a USB. i have bought a 32Gb small USB and have loaded my music onto it. i have set the music up in Folders where the name of the folder is the Artist and the Album Name e.g. Pink Floyd - Animals The individual tracks are then listed in the folder. However when I put the USB kin the car it only plays a few seconds then says there are no playab
  4. Thanks for replies. After some time I managed to get a deal I was happy with that included some goodies thrown in. I pick the car up tomorrow!
  5. I bit the bullet today so it's bye bye 2007 RX400h SR and hello 2015 NX300h Luxury. Now a few questions: 1. I was offered GAP insurance at £399 for three years cover. I know the principle but it would be interesting forum views on whether it is worthwhile and good value. 2. Also offered Minor Body Damage insurance at £399 for three years coverage. Views on this please although it did sound like it would offer better value. 3. Lexus are offering two years extra warranty (I am getting one year as part of deal) for £795. Views on this please especially value for money 4.
  6. I am close to buying a used 2015 NX Luxury and wondered what I should look for that are known issues. secondly how much is it reasonable to expect to be knocked off the asking price if you have been given a reasonable trade in value? It's years since I last bought so I'm out of touch!
  7. Those spec sheets are very useful. Thanks!
  8. Thanks for the very prompt replies so far. i must admit that the thought of the added features such as the power tailgate sound great but then for the last .20 years I haven't had one and it's not been a problem and I think I've only used front fog lamps about three times and I can't say I felt they made much difference. I will have to seriously think about what is important. Intrigued by the saving Stevet managed to get!
  9. I have had my RX400h since 2009 and am considering a change even though I still love the car as it coming to 100k miles and a few faults are appearing. i have seen several NX Sport models for sale secondhand but can't find much detail anywhere on the specification of this model as compared to the Luxury and the FSport. The prices being offered for 67 plate Sport models seem great but the equivalent Luxury and FSport suggest you would only get a 65 or 16 plate so there must be some major spec differences. Can anyone advise where I can see the spec differences? finally the car loo
  10. Ps only thing I have found that needs reprogramming following battery removal is the electric windows. Just go round each door and using that door's control lower window entirely and then raise it fully. Then drivers controls will work properly again
  11. As I started this topic I thought I'd give an update. The issue concluded when the battery finally packed up entirely - on Christmas Day! So had to use the wife's Fiesta for a couple of days before getting a new battery from Àndrew Page our local factors for £49.20. It's a Yousa 45Ah. Hopefully this should last this car out. in reply to last post if your battery is going flat after a couple of days of none use then I suspect it's a knackered battery so you need a new one. If it's only going flat after ten or more days then it's probably just gradual discharge and the battery booster may b
  12. That is reassuring. I recall the Lidl one said it was suitable for jump starting up 2 litre petrol engines. I presume that as it would only be required to 'power up' the small engine compartment battery and not jump start the actual engine (as the Lithium battery does that - or am I wrong?) it would be up to the job?
  13. Hi, I am talking about the piddly little battery in the main engine compartment. I along with many others have been the victim of a dead battery after a holiday and a very cold and long wait in an airport car park for the AA man to come to just connect another battery and 5 seconds later the engine is running, I have seen postings about rigging up a solar charger and have even considered carrying the battery form my wife's Ford Fiesta in the boot! However I have been told about a power bank charger being sold by Lidl. Its only £35 and probably has other uses but would it do the
  14. For all their talk about customer satisfaction I suppose it's too much to expect them to make their offers totally transparent. At the end of the day they are still car salesmen!
