Lexus Announces Plans to Recall & Correct GX 460 Issue

April 22, 2010

TORRANCE, CA - Lexus Group Vice President and General Manager, Mark Templin, provided a statement about the Lexus GX 460 recall.

"Since it was launched more than 20 years ago, Lexus has built its reputation on customer respect and concern for safety. With the news from Consumer Reports that our 2010 GX 460 did not pass its 'Throttle Lift-Off' test, we immediately stopped selling the vehicle and commenced vigorous testing to identify and correct the issue," said Templin.

"Today, I'm happy to announce that we have developed a remedy that will be quickly implemented to help address customer concerns.  We will be voluntarily recalling all 2010 GX 460s that have been sold in order to update the Vehicle Stability Control system.  We will begin implementing this program in the next two weeks and our dealers will be reaching out to customers shortly to set up appointments to make this modification," remarked Templin.
