2010 Lexus GX 460 recalled to update Vehicle Stability Control Software

Article by Christian A., on August 26, 2010

Toyota Motor Corp. ends speculation and has announced that it will recall the 2010 Lexus GX 460, the Lexus SUV that Consumer Reports magazine named to be a "safety risk."

In a statement, Toyota said that about 9,400 vehicles will be included in the recall. Toyota said that the vehicles will be given software updates on their vehicle stability control systems, which helps control a loss of traction during turns.

Toyota said that it aims to provide a high level of safety and quality, while meeting or surpassing governmental regulations, according to Steve St. Angelo, Toyota's chief quality officer for North America.

Its engineers have completed tests to confirm the VSC performance issue raised by Consumer Reports. They expressed confidence that this VSC software update resolves the concern. Toyota said that Lexus dealers will have the software update by the end of April.

The recall doesn't involve any other Toyota, Lexus, or Scion vehicle. Last week, Toyota said that production and sales of the vehicle have been stopped after Consumer Reports gave the car a "don't buy" recommendation on April 13. The magazine said that the car could roll over in emergency driving conditions.
