If you put the car in drive, leave your foot on the brake, does the steering wheel turn? Hopefully the steering wheel turns when you're driving! If you leave the car in park and try to turn the steering wheel, it doesn't like to turn very well in that way.

I'm not sure, but I was thinking maybe the linkage or the steering arm under the car. I think the electric is only to add the advantage to the power steering. They use that instead of a hydraulic pump.

It could also be that the steering wheel itself just isn't fastened. You might try to get the car on jack stands or a hoist and start moving the wheels themselves and watching and look for anything disconnected from there up.

To try to understand the parts and how they are connected maybe go to:

http://techinfo.lexus.com/

and download all the tech info and drawings on that system and then try to relate what could be causing the problem.

It may be the bearing got damaged during shipping(loading/unloading), excessive vibrations for long periods damage bearing.

But you should not be worried if you have Lexus in your country.

Did you get it from a dealership in the U.S.? Because if you did, I know this may sound cliche', but you got to take it back from where you bought it. I think the steering linkage is prolly not even connected. Sounds pretty weird. Srry for your misfortune. Hopefully you get some luck.

What? Take it to any Lexus dealer for warranty service.

By the way, how did they get the car off the boat if the steering didn't work?

It was in a container and they just lifted it off with a crane?
