Thank you for allowing me to help you with this concern today and am sorry to hear that this is happening. I will have to ask you a few questions so that I can get a better understanding as to what may be going on with your RX330.Did any warning lights come on?What happened to the car after you pulled over, did you have to tow it?

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!Dragging brakes will cause a vibration in some cases so odds are the steering wheel shake was just from the brake drag. A loose tie rod end could also contribute to the shake.Brake drag can come from a number of causes including calipers, pads that are physically stuck, collapsing hoses, or the master cylinder or ABS hydraulic control unit in more rare cases.Have you checked each wheel to see if one or more are hotter than the others when this happens?
