Toyota halts Lexus GX 460 sales in US


Japanese carmaker Toyota has announced that it will suspend sales in the US of one of its luxury vehicles.

The move came after a US consumer organisation warned customers not to buy the Lexus GX 460 four-wheel drive because of fears it could roll over.

The last time it judged a vehicle's performance unacceptable was in 2001.

Toyota said it remained confident that the vehicle was safe, but would suspend its sale to identify and correct the safety issues identified.
