We told you about Consumer Reports findings on the 2010 Lexus GX460 yesterday. Their concerns over the malfunctioning stability control of the Lexus SUV prompted Toyota to issue a sales halt on Lexus GX460s in the United States. Toyota has now expanded that sales stop to include all global markets until the issue can be addressed.
Toyota doesn’t want another unintended acceleration debacle on their hands, so they’re being extremely proactive with this situation. The automaker announced that they’ll be retesting the stability control on all of their SUV models, to ensure consumer safety and restore confidence in the brand.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go see if I can induce drop-throttle oversteer in my FJ. All in the interests of safety, of course.
