DETROIT May 7 Consumer Reports lifted on
Friday its warning not to buy Toyota Motor Corp's (7203.T)
Lexus GX 460 sports utility vehicle, after the automaker
recalled vehicles for repairs and made changes on the assembly
Toyota halted sales on April 13 when Consumer Reports
warned that the 2010 Lexus GX 460 was a safety risk due to
rollover concerns in some turns.
Toyota and its dealers resumed sales of the luxury SUV on
April 29, after finding a fix for some 9,400 consumer-owned
vehicles and making changes in production of new ones.
Consumer Reports and Toyota have said they are not aware of
any injuries related to the issue.
The rise of Toyota to be among the top sellers in the U.S.
market in the 1990s was in part fueled by positive reviews of
its vehicles by Consumer Reports.
Toyota's top ratings for quality have taken a hit as more
than 9 million of its vehicles have been recalled.
