WASHINGTON (Bloomberg) -- Toyota Motor Corp. said today it will recall the Lexus SUV that Consumer Reports magazine rated a “safety risk.”
About 9,400 vehicles will be included in the recall of the 2010 Lexus GX 460, Toyota said in a statement.
The vehicles will be given software updates on their vehicle stability control systems, which helps control a loss of traction during turns,Toyota said.
“Toyota's objective is to provide a high level of safety and quality, while meeting or surpassing governmental regulations," Steve St. Angelo, Toyota's chief quality officer for North America, said in the statement.
"Our engineers have conducted tests to confirm the VSC performance issue raised by Consumer Reports, and we are confident this VSC software update addresses the concern."
Lexus dealers will have the software update by the end of April, Toyota said. No other Toyota, Lexus, or Scion vehicles are involved in the recall.
The company last week said it would halt production and sales of the vehicle after Consumer Reports issued a “don't buy” recommendation, saying the vehicle may be prone to rolling over in emergency driving conditions. The rating was issued on April 13.
