WASHINGTON (AP) - Toyota says it has resumed sales of the 2010
Lexus GX 460 and the software fix to repair the vehicle stability
control system is now available at dealerships.
Toyota recalled nearly 10,000 Lexus SUVs last week because of
possible rollover dangers. The announcement Thursday came after
Consumer Reports issued a rare "Don't Buy" rating over concerns
the vehicle could flip in tight turns.
Lexus Group Vice President Mark Templin says dealers began
contacting owners Wednesday to schedule the software update. He
says the automaker is confident the changes will make the
performance of the GX better for customers.
