Associated Press | Toyota says it has resumed sales of the 2010 Lexus GX460 and the software fix to repair the vehicle stability control system is now available at dealerships.

Toyota recalled nearly 10,000 of the SUVs last week because of possible rollover dangers. The announcement came after Consumer Reports issued a rare “don’t buy” rating over concerns the vehicle could flip in tight turns. Lexus Group Vice President Mark Templin says dealers began contacting owners Wednesday to schedule the software update. He says the automaker is confident the changes will make the performance of the GX better for customers.
