Toyota Resumes Sales of Lexus GX 460
By Izzi Bendall
The Japanese automaker stopped sales of the vehicle after Consumer Reports magazine declared the SUV a safety risk, warning readers that it was prone to oversteer in turns.
Lexus tested the car in response to the warning and made changes to the vehicle's electronic stability-control software. New vehicles are being built with the new software, and dealers will install software upgrades on the recalled vehicles.
The Lexus GX 460 is built on the same platform as the Toyota 4Runner, which--along with the larger Toyota Sequoia and Land Cruiser SUVs--is currently being tested by Toyota to detect any similar concerns.
