Lexus Resumes Sales of the GX 460 after Announcing Fix

Lexus has announced a solution to the faulty stability control system which resulted in the recall of the GX 460 luxury SUV. Toyota’s luxury division has issued a press release in which it states that the fix is available effective immediately at dealers worldwide.

I’m happy to announce that an update for the 2010 GX 460 vehicle stability control system is now available at Lexus dealers nationwide,” said Mark Templin, Lexus vice president and general manager. “Our dealers began contacting customers yesterday offering to make arrangements to perform the update, and we expect them to get in touch with most GX owners within one week,” added Templin.

Lexus also announced that sales of the luxury SUV with the fix applied would resume immediately. “With the revision now in place, we are also resuming sales of the 2010 GX 460. We are confident that the update will make the performance of the GX even better for our customers,” stated Templin.

The Lexus GX 460 was recalled after Consumer Reports discovered an unsafe reaction to high-speed maneuvers due to a failing vehicle stability control system. Lexus had temporarily halted production and sales of the SUV while it investigated the issue and worked on a solution.

Thanks to the quick response and hard work by our engineers, we were able to identify and correct the issue in just about two weeks. This is our assurance to Lexus customers that their safety and satisfaction are our top priorities. As previously announced, we will continue to provide a courtesy vehicle to anyone who has purchased a 2010 GX 460 and has concerns about driving it until the recall work has been completed,” reads the press release.
