Car has a defective part which Lexus will not admit too, a defective axle assembly.
The Check Engine Light may illuminate with a fault code P0505 stored. Our technicians tell us that this fault can be caused by a failed electronic throttle body assembly which will require replacement.

Lexus ES350 RecallsBrakes Do Not Stop Effectively
The anti-lock brake system actuator may have a damaged o-ring that can result in improper brake fluid pressure control during events that activate the anti-lock brake, traction control or stability control systems. This could lead to loss of vehicle control. Dealers will inspect the brake actuator and replace it as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.
The pre-collision system may activate while driving due to the radar equipped with the vehicle recognizing steel plates or roadway joints as an object that should be avoided. Dealers will temporarily disable the system as a precaution at this time, and will notify owners of affected vehicles a second time when a permanent repair procedure is available. Repairs will be made free of charge.
Toyota is recalling 2004–2010 models for an accelerator pedal that can get stuck in the wide open position due to problems with the floor mat. This may cause high vehicle speeds that make it difficult to stop the vehicle, which can result in a crash. In order to correct the problem, dealers will replace the pedals, alter the shape of the floor, and/or replace the floor mats. Toyota will also modify software on certain models to ensure that the brake overrides the accelerator in the event that both are applied.
