Mysterious Front End Vibration - 2000 Ls400

Recommended Posts

2000 LS400 with 60k miles. Mysterious vibration has developed in front end when temperature is 45 degrees, or lower, especially upon initial start. I feel the vibration from the road up and very slightly with the steering wheel. Vibration lessens, but does not go away entirely, upon warm up and driving several miles. I rotated and balanced the tires and no change. The front rotors were turned but I don't think it is a brake issue. I am not a mechanic and there are so many potential causes, but I suspect either motor mounts or something in the engine causing a slight imbalance. I do not feel any vibration when full speed crusing on the highway. I have searched the Forum but have not stumbled upon this precise issue. Anyone else have an experience similar to this? Many thanks for your replies.

did you check your engine mounts?

I'm due an oil change and will ask the mechanic to check the engine mounts. Do you think this is best done by a Lexus dealer service department?
