#5452 of 8465 Ext warranty
Mar 07, 2004 (3:32 am)
Re: post 5441. I purchased extended warranty for I plan to keep my 2001 LS 430 forever. I checked all Lexus dealers in Was, DC area and saved $400 off the original offer from my dealer. Suggest you shop around. I assume the warranty can be purchased via phone so you may not need to deal locally if you can get a better price somewhere else. FYI--I purchased thru Lexus of Silver Spring, MD.

Which warranty did you purchase and at what price? My local dealer wanted $1500 for a 6/70 no deductible warranty. I drive few enough miles that a 6/100 or 7/100, the only other options offered, don't make much sense for me.

Is a Cadillac SRX.
I am enjoying the heck out of it.
More headroom, but I will have to remove the
sunshade because of the low windshield header.
Blocks my upward vision.

#5456 of 8465 Updated navigation DVD
Mar 07, 2004 (12:56 pm)
The last update to the navigation DVD was in October 2003. It contained a lot more points of interest, but only limited street updates.
The update frequency was supposedly changed from every year to every six months, so that would make the next one available around April or so.
I'm a bit skeptical about this, myself, as I remember the promises of six month updates back when the LS430 came out in 2001. They'll need to come out with an update in the fall or the 2005 models won't have new data. So, they'll certainly release one then, if not sooner.
Personally, I'm holding out for the next one due to the high cost of the discs. Hard for me to do, as I could really use the update, but I'm not going to blow over $250 on it just to see a new one come out a few months later.
When the new one comes out, it'll be for sale at www.lexus-parts.com and your local dealer.
If anyone else has any more information about the navigation DVD updates, please post it.

I wonder if there is a market amongst us for "used" DVDs, just one revision outdated?

Thanks Sean...I'll keep my ears open and will post something if I get some new news on the DVD update. I wrote an e-mail to Lexus Customer Service last week. If they respond I'll let you know what they said...

Back from my dealer today with another failure on their part to make a C-BEST option selection on my '04 LS which the owner's manual describes. On an earlier trip, they said they knew nothing about the light intensity adjustment described on page 114 of the manual. Today I asked for auto door locking at 12 mph as described on page 48, and they said there was no way to do that either. What experiences have you people had with these or other options? My dealer is 0 for 2.

...several C-BEST settings on my 03 LS. It took all of 15 minutes without a problem.
