Video: Consumer Reports says don’t buy the Lexus GX 460 because of a “safety risk”


The Lexus GX 460 is a big and perhaps top heavy luxurious SUV and (according to Consumer Reports) you shouldn't buy it because its not safe.


Because when they conducted a test that simulates a rapid charge up a curved highway ramp…the back end of the Lexus swung out of control before the stability control intervened and brought the car back under control.

Technically it would be called a tendency to oversteer during in-corner throttle lift and Consumer Reports says that it is a "safety risk".

Consumer Report goes on to warn that in a situation like this the Lexus could hit a curve and even flip over.

Watch the their video below to see the test and what happens to the Lexus when they hustle it around a curve.
