Lexus GX 460 sport prohibited from buying

Prohibited from buying 2010 Lexus GX 460 Sport Utility Vehicles because of handling problems that lead to rollover and can buy a "serious injury or death" according to Consumer Reports magazine. Advice is rarely a magazine, but there is no doubt that it is necessary, said David Champion, director, Consumer Reports auto test. Litmus test is whether the testers did not want their families to the vehicle. The answer is no, he said: "I do not want other people in it."

Overcoming the problem arises when the driver releases the gas pedal when driving fast through a sharp bend. This causes the rear of the vehicle to turn out the slides, over starter as "accelerators known to leak" or "lift-gas" SUVs tested in dozens of other magazines., Recognizing the Electronic Vehicle Stability Control system and immediately arrested the slide Just do not stop the control stability., GX 460, until almost the next, Champion said.

"For the first time we have seen in an SUV with the ESC," he said, referring to the electronic stability control. Consumer Reports says "rare" for the magazine is not "assess the performance of a vehicle that can be accepted. The latest example in 2001 for the Mitsubishi Montero Limited in 2001.

Lexus in a statement that the producer was "surprised" by reviewing the results, because his own conduct background checks and security is our top priority. But Lexus said: "We will look at this seriously and appreciate Consumer Reports knew" he draws our attention. "

Mr. Champion said that the question of the test track in East Haddam magazine, Connecticut, revealed in research for 'all the bad habits that can find driver. "He said:" We want the car to Benin. "

Special audit that the magazine contains a twist that suddenly much clearer. The driver is located approximately 60 miles per hour, and then, as if startled, took off the gas. Ideally, electronic stability control will stop the slide that caused by the maneuver, so that the vehicle is safe to complete the series.

Four magazine tested the Lexus driver, so you do not see the other or to compare notes, Mr. Champion said. They met later and found each had the same problem with the tail sliding too far. "It was like" Wow, how about the back! "He said.

He added that Toyota engineers then checked the vehicle and found it meets factory specifications. Magazine anonymously bought the unit test vehicle instead of a car loan.

Mr. Champion said, such problems can occur in daily life. For example, a driver to go fast in a curve - like the highway - which in turn is stronger than expected, of course, stands out of gas, he said. The danger, he said, is that when a film such as a high SUV as easily be triggered by limitation or soft soil, which can be imposed.

The problem with Lexus is that electronic stability control does not work very well, "Champion said." Design is too slow to slide before you really go too far. "

In a statement Lexus complained that the magazine does not prove that the problem of its representatives. However, Mr. Champion said that while the official platform, it was raining heavily, who visited this apples to apples possible reproduction. But, he said, they showed the video of the experiment before officials Lexus.

Mr. Champion said electronic stability system to other Lexus and Toyota models used are always quick to stop the film work, so the problem was a surprise in the GX 460 new Toyota 4Runner, which uses the same basic architecture, Lexus has been tested on the same day and not there is a problem, "he said.
