Toyota halts sales of Lexus SUV

Toyota has halted sales on a popular luxury SUV after a new safety report says the vehicle is a rollover risk.

According to Toyota, it decided to temporarily stop selling the Lexus GX460 after Consumer Reports put a "Don't Buy" warning label on the 2010 model. After testing the SUV, Consumer Reports says it is at a high risk of rolling over when making sharp turns.

The automaker released a statement saying, "We are taking the situation with GX460 very seriously and are determined to identify and correct the issue Consumer Reports identified."
