Consumer Reports’ Slams 2010 Lexus GX 460 SUV, Sales Suspended

Consumer Reports decision to issue a “not acceptable” rating for the 2010 Lexus GX 460 SUV has prompted Toyota to suspended sales of the vehicle.

A “not acceptable” rating is extremely rare. In fact, the last time Consumer Reports concluded that a vehicle was “not acceptable” for consumers to buy was in 2001, when it warned consumers away from the Mitsubishi Montero Limited.

In a statement late Tuesday, Toyota said engineering teams were testing the GX 460 using Consumer Reports’ methodology. “We are taking the situation with the GX 460 very seriously and are determined to identify and correct the issue Consumer Reports identified,” said Mark Templin, Lexus Group vice president and general manager.

While the Toyota did not issue a recall for the SUV, it is offering current owners use of loaner cars while it tries to figure out why it failed a Consumer Reports’ handling test.

The “not acceptable” rating was meted out by Consumer Reports after its tests showed the 2010 Lexus GX 460 SUV was prone to slide when driven in sweeping turns. The publication said the sliding its test drivers found in the GX 460 could cause rollover accidents resulting in serious injury or death. Ideally, the vehicle’s electronic stability control system would stop such a slide. The publication urged consumers not to buy the GX 460.

In a statement, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) said it was in contact with both Consumer Reports and the automaker. The statement said the agency “advises drivers of the 2010 Lexus GX 460 SUV to use care and caution”. As of Tuesday, the NHTSA’s files showed no record of consumer complaints related to the 2010 Lexus GX 460.
