Check your Alphards past history in Japan in detail with CarVX ×

It's probably axle tramp, most of these things don't have traction/stability control so you push 220hp through the front end of something like an Alphard harshly, it's somewhat to be expected.

Load shift.


The quicker, and more suddenly, you accelerate the more loading shifts (load transfer) to the rear axle/wheels.

As the vehicle is a fixed weight, less loading will be on the front axles, causing less adhesion. 


Is the rear end suspension in prime condition ?


Similarly, if your front suspension is less than optimal that will increase the tendency to 'tramp', as Paul described.


You should get your suspension checked, when is your next MOT ?


The quick, easy and inexpensive solution is to 'take' it easy.
