Our little buddies at Consumer Reports have determined that a safety risk may be present in the 2010 Lexus GX 460 SUV. When pushed to its limits on CR’s track, the rear of the GX they bought “slid out until the vehicle was almost sideways before the electronic stability control system was able to regain control.”
CR says they do this test on all SUVs and of the 95 they’ve tested in the current ratings only this Lexus performed badly enough to warrant the dreaded “Don’t Buy.”
Check out this video for slow motion footage of the test. Looks kinda fun, but you wouldn’t want to try it inadvertently on a exit ramp, right?
