Default LS 460 vibration issue

I am new to Lexus forum.. I just bought a brand new LS 460L from lexus dealer in Sarasota, FL area. My car had wobbling issue around 1400 miles right after the first 1000 miles service. I took it to dealer and they said...there is a service bulletin out for 2008 LS 460 which has some poor assembly in bushing and they said they fixed it. As I am driving my car back to my about 20 more miles I started feeling the vibrations again. I took the car back and it is been a week... no definite answer from the dealer. They even changed my custom wheels with standard LS wheels and the problem still persisted. I am really concerned that it will ever get fixed!!! and if they don't then what do i need to do???

I would really appreciate your answer.

Default LS460 Vibration Problem

I have the same problem with my car purchased in Fremont, CA. Mar 2009. They said they fixed it, but not so. I have a sustained vibration at 72 mph and can feel vibrations with every bump in the road. If they can't fix it, I'm going to put in my own shocks and see if it makes a difference. I don't trust these new variable suspension air shocks. My 2005 LS has a much better ride than the LS460.
If you don't get satisfaction, use the lemon law and get your money back.

bad balancing position. on most cars, you want the wheel with the most weight on the Pax Rear, and the one with the Least weight on the Driver Front, so that you dont feel the vibration... does the car still run straight? or is it like a side to side jerky motion?
Have great lexus and hyundai parts
