Default Roll Over Risk: Consumer Reports warns against 2010 Lexus GX460

Kinda makes you wonder what kind of junk they're building these days.


"Consumer Reports, the widely respected arbiter of quality and
reliability, urged customers not to buy the 2010 Lexus GX460 because
it may roll over in certain situations based on tests by the
magazine's automotive test drivers.

This is the first time the magazine has issued a "don't buy"
recommendation on any Toyota, Lexus or Scion vehicle."

I'm beginning to think there just might be something to the
conspirators' theory that someone is out to "get" Toyota.
Gov't, UAW, and banksters with financial interests in the new GM can
pull a lot of levers and push a lot of buttons when they want to.

"get " toyota! the 4 runner didnt do it and its the same frame. CR has
squashed a few Suvs in the past years from Rollover potential. "Get
Toyota" get a life, toyota im sure knew this and again doesnt do
anything. By not doing anything, they Save Mo Moneeey. Just like the
fix production Prisus and dont notify any one of any problems. That
16,000,000 fine was 16 because thats the max that can be fined

Hmm. Interesting. A SUV that could roll over if it's driven hard. Who'd
have known? Sorry, but without a whole bunch of driving controls such as
stability control turned on, it can happen with any SUV if anyone drives
enough like an idiot..

Get real. CR may be idiots, but they kiss ass to nobody. No advertising,
no govt subsidies, no nothing. They lost all credibility for me on
vehicle tests a long time ago. At least they didn't use those silly
outriggers that changed the CG, this time.

The computer is slow to kick in and control the vehicle. Seems there
is a computer problem with the acceleration and braking problems also.
And my kamikazee kar kicks in slow when I floor it. Anyone see any
pattern here? Well, I am asking about a pattern with the computer
thingies. The pattern of Japanese warfare against the world is very
clear, of course. Remember that the Japanese claim that Business is
war, so this old traditional emire oriented family is engaged in war.
Hmmm ... computer as weapon?

What's the big deal? Anybody that purchases a truck-based, high center
of gravity vehicle increases his chances for dying in a roll over
accident. This has always been the case. Don't buy any SUV unless you're
willing to accept that risk.

Are you serious? LITERACY isn't a requirement for a drivers license. You
really think center of gravity or truck-based or dying or risk register?

Sure, you need to be able to read to get a license. Not only that, my
guess is that folks ought to be able to put 2 and 2 together.

My understanding is that Toyota is gonna fix that nasty rollover problem
by the use of more airbags. Of course, they're on the outside of the
vehicle. :-)
