Hello there from Pennsylvania. In July 2021, I purchased a certified pre-owned 2017 LS 460 AWD/non-F Sport model. It's a great vehicle and has approx. 36k miles on it. I know these vehicles are well known for their superior build quality, craftmanship, and reliability. There's an issue though... there is a slight vibration coming through the steering column when driving at speeds around 20-40mph. This can also be felt by the passenger.
The dealership is aware of my issue, test drove it with me (as to duplicate the issue), and said that they do not think it's the control arms, in need of alignment, balance, wheel weights, etc. To date, this issue is still unresolved with my local Lexus dealership as the Tech needs to further research to see what the root cause is and wants to drive another LS 460 to see if the same issue occurs in that vehicle. I'm hoping the Lexus dealership doesn't get back with me and say that this is normal - I can't see how this would be normal for an LS.
I'm not mechanically savvy, rely on the Lexus Tech's experience, and also hoping that someone on this Forum can provide helpful suggestions...
If anyone has experienced a similar issue, has information to share, needs more info from my end, etc., please advise.
Thank you for your time!
