Toyota Testing All SUVs for Stability Concerns

We know that Toyota halted sales of its 2010 Lexus GX 460 SUV after Consumer Reports slapped it with a "don't buy" label, and now comes news that Toyota is going to test all of its SUVs to make sure that they are not at risk of rolling over.

Toyota says that no customers have experienced the problems that Consumer Reports experienced, and there haven't been any reports of other Toyota and Lexus SUVs having problems. Nonetheless, Toyota, perhaps burned by bad PR over its ongoing unintended acceleration problems, is looking to get out ahead of the story and alleviate consumer concerns by making sure its vehicles are safe.

We'll keep an eye on this story, although it's important to note that up to this point, only the GX 460 has been known to have any problems, and so far, those issues were limited to a fail test by Consumer Reports. 

Keep checking with us for more information.

  2. gotta hand it to toyota here. at least they're being preemptive, and not getting defensive publicly, denying it's true. counts for something.

  3. tommy dejoung, that's only because Toyota is already in the crapper for the whole unintended acceleration thing. I bet if that didn't happen Toyota would try to cover this up like it has in the past.

  5. Toyota has to be in the position where even the perception of new problems has to be dealt with quickly and drastically.
