2010 Lexus GX 460 review

During my test of the 2010 Lexus GX 460, I was routinely asked what I was driving. The only way I could get the questioners to grasp how the GX 460 stands out in Lexus' lineup was to tell them it was the SUV that failed a Consumer Reports test of its stability control system. They instantly knew which SUV it was after that.

Quickly, I reminded them that Lexus adjusted the system and that it is now presumably a "safe" SUV. But even so, during my time with the relatively short, narrow and very tall SUV, it exhibited body lean that was unsettling to me, despite my years of testing and owning large SUVs.

If the lone strike against the GX were its body lean, I'd still recommend it to shoppers in this segment, especially the many fans of its previous generation, the GX 470. Unfortunately, though, the strikes against the GX 460 just kept piling up during my test drive.

No $60,000 vehicle of any size or shape should be so flawed especially when most models costing far less do far better in nearly every respect.
