Well, what the problem is is that i drive smoothly all the way up to max mph... BUT i was driving a steady 40mph on my 2001 automatic and it began to jerk. It shook front to back- enough to jerk my head back and forth.... I'm guessing its my auto tranny- but I only have 33k miles on my IS300...

ANYONE ELSE HAVE THIS PROBLEM BEFORE???

:(

It also happened again the day after... :cry:

I would suggest that you bring it to the dealer since you only have 33K miles you should be covered under warranty.

It sounds like it may be a bent rim and/or a bent inner tie rod. Hit any potholes lately?

Possibly the engine is running really rough at that speed and causing the trans to shake.
