http://money.cnn.com/2010/04/13/autos/consumer_reports_lexus_gx460/index.htm?hpt=T1 CR has done this stuff before. There have never been a reported rollover from this so why are they raising the big fuss? IIRC, they were sued by Suzuki for a similar thing.

Although I don't always agree with Mr. Champion's emphasis on various aspects of testing, this rates a strong response:
1. Trailing throttle oversteer has no place in a family SUV that has a high center of gravity. 2. The car is market positioned for buyers and driving applications where this characteristic is outright undesirable. (unlike Porsche 911T, Pontiac Fiero, etc. Winding up in the roadside ditch isn't as serious as experiencing a rollover in a large box.) 3. As a comparatively new vehicle, it's best for all concerned that this be corrected now rather than later.
Ideally, Toyota should correct the underlying rear suspension design shortcomings rather than just hopping up the braking and electronic response to 'fight' the issue.
