Safety concern halts Toyota GX-460 sales

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Toyota dealers temporarily halted sales of the 2010 GX-460 SUV after consumer reports issued a "Don't Buy" rating for the vehicle. The warning stems from a number of test drives of the vehicle which found that the rear wheels "lift off oversteer" if a driver goes into a turn too fast and tries to slow down again.

This kind of a skid is dangerous and can lead to rollovers. Customers who have such a vehicle that are concerned about driving their vehicle can contact Toyota for a loaner car until the situation is resolved.
