Consumer Reports has officially given Toyota the proverbial pat on the back for its fix of the Lexus GX 460′s stability issues. This is a significant move because CR was the organization that originally uncovered the problem during its testing, placing a “Don’t Buy: Safety Risk” recommendation on the Lexus SUV. That recommendation is officially lifted and CR has issued a report stating that the Lexus software fix has repaired the problem.
After CR’s original report, Toyota worked on a fix, recalling the Lexus SUV and suspending sales and production. The fix was announced in late April and sales commenced. Consumer Reports brought its own GX 460 in for repair anonymously and then retested it. Watch video of exactly what they had to say below. [via Inside Line]
