Consumer Reports brands the Lexus GX as a "Do Not Buy"
The Lexus GX may be a nice car, but it’s certainly not winning any favors from Consumer Reports, especially after they gave Lexus’ luxury SUV a balls-to-the-wall beatdown when they included the car to their "Do Not Buy" list.
Reserved for only the worst of the worst - at least in the eyes of Consumer Report - the "Do Not Buy" list is a place no automaker wants to be in. According to Consumer Report, the Lexus GX has some pretty serious oversteering issues that could, in certain situations, make the SUV roll over. In addition to that, CR also commented that the GX has a flawed traction control that makes it slide sideways before regaining control.
For its part, Toyota - Lexus’ parent company - has expressed concern over the comments made by Consumer Report and rightfull so, considering that the brand hasn’t exactly been a bastion of good publicity these days.
