Lexus LS430 Abnormal Noise From Steering Column

(9 reports)

An abnormal noise may be noted from the steering column. Our technicians tell us this may be due to insufficient strength of the telescoping steering column cable, a redesigned cable has been made available to correct this concern.

The telescopic steering has been making noise and now it quits going in-and-out. Tilting is still working fine though. -
every time I drive over a lumpy road it make a weird noise like it has to do something with the suspension. I have been to 5 different mechanics and they cant figure out the problem. They all tell me that there is absolutely no problems but it keeps bothering me! Everyone tells me "its a Lexus" and I ask them "what does that mean", everyone's response is the same "LEXUS DOES NOT HAVE PROBLEMS, stop imagining things." I dont understand, I am willing to pay to get rid of the stupid noise and sound! Does anyone else have the same problem when driving over a rough road slowly? -
Once I turn off the ignition switch the steering wheel retracts making a humming noise. -
In hot weather the telescoping column "moans" when I turn the key to the on position. -
