Does the 2005 Lexus ES 330 have Bluetooth?

I’m on the fence about picking up a used Lexus, but my friend says it’s a good way to try out the brand. There’s a 2005 ES 330 available, but it seems a little out-of-date. Does it even have Bluetooth?

Buying a used car does come with some restrictions—like not having the updated tech you’re used to. This is the case when it comes to the 2005 Lexus ES 330 and Bluetooth. Although Lexus introduced Bluetooth capability to its vehicles in 2003, not every model came with factory-installed Bluetooth, including the 2005 ES 330.
Here are the audio options for a 2005 Lexus ES 330 with no aftermarket modifications:
  • AM/FM stereo
  • 7 speakers and 1 subwoofer
  • Radio data system
  • Diversity antenna
  • Audio controls on the steering wheel
Some used 2005 ES 330 models may have limited Bluetooth capabilities depending on the features that were added to the base model, but you can easily add on a
Bluetooth adapter
if the used model you’re looking at doesn’t have Bluetooth. A Bluetooth adapter will cost around $80 to $150 depending on which kind you buy, but it may be worth it to be able to stream music in your car!
Having your phone paired to your vehicle isn’t just convenient—it can also make you a better driver. With hands-free options and voice activation, you can keep your eyes on the road and avoid a
