Toyota conducts safety tests on all SUV models

(AP) - Toyota says it's testing the safety of all its sport-utility models after Consumer Reports warned that the 2010 Lexus GX 460 has possible roll-over problems.

Toyota Motor Corp. said Thursday it had not yet decided whether to recall the GX 460, which is sold mainly in North America, but also in the Middle East, Russia and some other nations.

Toyota stopped selling the GX 460 in North America temporarily Tuesday following the Consumer Reports warning. The magazine issued a rare warning not to buy the vehicle because its driving tests revealed a problem that could cause the vehicle to roll over.
