Consumer Reports has announced that it has removed the 2010 Lexus GX 460 from its “Dont Buy” list since Toyota has fixed the handling problems that the publication discovered during its emergency handling tests.
Toyota corrected the issue by fixing the software that allowed the stability control system to not prevent the vehicle from sliding during certain maneuvers. Consumer Reports originally labeled the issue as a safety risk since the vehicle could roll over if the vehicle were to slide and hit a curb or slide off the pavement.
Toyota recalled approximately 10,000 units to fix the issue and suspended sales until a fix was found. On April 29th sales of the GX 460 resumed. It’s important to note that there were no injuries reported due to this problem.
