Toyota stopped sales of the 2010 Lexus GX 460 after Consumer Reports said it had found concerns of possible rollovers during one of its tests. In Japan, Toyota’s engineers did found the same results.
As an response, Toyota has updated the vehicle stability control software and looks like now the car is safe.
“An update for the 2010 GX 460 vehicle stability control system is now available at Lexus dealers nationwide,” said Mark Templin Lexus group vice president and general manager. “Our dealers began contacting customers yesterday offering to make arrangements to perform the update, and we expect them to get in touch with most GX owners within one week.”
When Consumer Reports announced on April 13 that the 2010 GX 460 did not pass their “Throttle Lift-Off” test, Toyota “immediately stopped selling the vehicle and commenced a vigorous investigation,” Templin said. “As previously announced, we will continue to provide a courtesy vehicle to anyone who has purchased a 2010 GX 460 and has concerns about driving it until the recall work has been completed.”
