2012 Lexus IS250 131K miles.
The car vibrates on the right side when stopped at a stop sign or red light. It also vibrates and wobbles when taking off but it stabilizes at faster speeds. The shaking disappears when the car is in park.

Those symptoms are usually associated with deteriorated motor mounts.

Yes it does as HT just said. You can see this with hood open, brake standing both "D" and "R" engine tilts too much. Either with hood open or with helper you trust!

Bad mounts won't always show movement. They often just lose their ability to insulate.

One test you can use is to put a floor jack under the oil pan with a block of wood while someone sits in the car holding the brake in drive. If very slight lift of the engine, just enough to take the weight off the mounts, makes the vibration go away, the mount is the problem.
