Consumers Reports lifts ‘Do Not Buy’ warning off 2010 Lexus GX460 | Rpmgo.com



It’s been one heck of a month for the 2010 Lexus GX460, as after it was tested by Consumer Reports, going all tail-happy on the drivers, it received the infamous ‘Do Not Buy’ warning.

As you already know, Toyota acted quickly and revealed in just a week or so a new software update for the Vehicle Stability Control on the luxury SUV. This prevented the car from sliding out of control during corners (aka drifting), ensuring that the luxo-barge keeps it together.

Now, after the sale of the 2010 Lexus GX460 has been restarted and owners are being called in for the software fix, Consumer Reports has once again tested the SUV in its own facilities. The results should make Toyota and Lexus quite happy, as the ‘Do Not Buy’ warning has officially been lifted.

Hopefully the Japanese carmaker will be more careful with its safety tests and won’t be plagued by such problems in the future.
