I've been driving my new IS300 for over a week now, and I love it. I do though, notice that my traction control seems REALLY sensitive. Living in Seattle, this car gets driven on a lot of wet roads, but still the traction control seems to kick in on half of the turns I take. Also, on straightaway acceleration, I notice it kicking in a lot. I've had it kick in on dry roads also.
Does this seem consistent with everyone else's experiences with the IS? I know that there was discussions about ECU updates and TRAC replacments, but I thought that this was only on 2001 models.
For comparison, I've been in my friends 330, and there is a huge difference in the two cars. His traction control kicks in when his tires break loose. Mine kicks in much more often.
Any information is appreciated. I am wondering if I should bring this up to my dealer when I get my 1000 mile service.
