Consumer Reports has removed the “Do Not Buy” label from the Lexus GX460 luxury SUV, announcing that changes made by Lexus to the vehicle’s stability control program have solved the issue that CR initially said could cause a roll over and, therefore, posed a safety risk.

In response to the magazine’s initial test, Lexus halted sale on the GX460 and then recalled all 9,400 models in order to install a reprogrammed stability control program. Lexus has since resumed sales of the GX and has begun to fix recalled vehicles, offering GX460 customers uncomfortable with driving their SUV a loaner until the fix is performed.
