Still in Santa Fe. NX is back, returned last night...electively. No error codes. Glad I had the videos. Dealership terrific, except for one service advisor. Service manager, Ralph Ross is the best. Supposedly, the absurd story goes...... "You're never supposed to plug your blue tooth enabled iPhone into USB. Didn't you read the manual?" Huh? No, actually, I did not read the manual. Too large....too big. I read the quick reference guide. And.......as an FYI, I did not use the USB for anything other than a separate, dedicated iPod.
They gave me a '15 RX350 AWD as a loaner. Found it to be a mush lug, in need of a new design.
Lexus is paying for hotel. Offered to ship the vehicle back to CA and pay for my air, because of my discomfort level. I have a pet to transport, so no to that.
Love the NX 300h. Not interested in another Lexus. Service advisor in Santa Fe stated this was a known issue, along with new generation navi problems. "You have to understand, this is the first year of production." Really? I didn't exactly sign up for the "Beta" program.
I will drive the vehicle. If it happens again.......right into a hotel.....and I will send the keys back.
Thanks to all, especially Thai, for your quality support.
