Does a 2008 Lexus RX 350 have Bluetooth?

I found a Lexus for a great deal on a nearby used lot, but it’s a little on the older side, so I’m wondering if the interior will feel dated. Does a 2008 Lexus RX 350 have Bluetooth?

Yes, the 2008
Lexus RX 350
does have Bluetooth. However, it only works with phone calls. If you want to stream music via Bluetooth, you’ll need to install an aftermarket part.
adding a Bluetooth adapter to an older car
is a pretty easy DIY project. Most Bluetooth adaptor kits, will cost you around $150. To install it, remove the gear shift panel; remove the OEM radio; plug in the harness cable, aux cable, and Bluetooth module; then put everything back in place.
Although you may find cheaper plug-in Bluetooth kits on retail sites like Amazon, be cautious and double check to make sure that they’ll work for your specific make and model.
Or, if you just need Bluetooth to make hands-free calls, you can bypass the aftermarket upgrade altogether—and there’s no shame in jamming out to a CD you’ve burned yourself.
