  9. Just wondering if anyone has any thoughts, advice, experience. Thinking about purchasing a 2009 low mileage example. Ne reason really, my kids are grown up, I dont tow or need off road capability - just fancy one.

    think your in a minority of 1 there.
  11. My IS250 used to do it at my old house which required full lock to reverse off the drive, as I went across the pavement and onto the road itself. It was worse the quicker I did it. Rolling backward very slowly eliminated it.Being RWD there is a lot of angle available on the front wheels and you literally drag one of them across the surface if you go too quickly. When doing the turn which causes it, do it as slow as possible, especially at or near full lock. The juddering is entirley normal and worse in cold temps. I've experienced it in Mercedes, Audi and Subaru and my daughters Yaris does it as well. Winter tyres help as they are a softer compund.
  12. must admit I wouldnt of thought of that fix :-)
