As Toyota suspends sales of the 2010 Lexus GX 460 amid motor vehicle safety questions, concerned drivers can find relief by requesting a loaner sports utility vehicle.
Toyota – already forced recently to recall 2.3 million vehicles over motor vehicle safety defects – halted sales this week after Consumer Reports issued a “Don’t Buy: Safety Risk,” warning because tests revealed handling problems with the electronic stability control. The magazine is concerned about potential motor vehicle accidents and motor vehicle rollovers. No motor vehicle accidents involving personal injuries or deaths have been reported, but the magazine’s “don’t buy” warning is its first in nearly a decade for a motor vehicle.
“Drivers are facing an extraordinary number of recalls, mostly from Toyota,” said Boston personal injury attorney David W. White of Breakstone, White & Gluck. “Massachusetts residents should immediately seek repairs or loaner vehicles to protect themselves, their families, and other drivers.”
