TOKYO, April 15 (BestGrowthStock) – Toyota Motor Corp (7203.T: ) said
on Thursday it had suspended sales of its Lexus GX 460 model in
markets outside the United States following a report of a risk of

The model is sold in the Middle East, Oceania and Russia in
addition to the U.S.

Toyota suspended sales of the car in the U.S. market on
Tuesday after Consumer Reports magazine warned against buying it,
calling it a “safety risk” because of a potential handling
problem in certain turns.

A Toyota spokesman in Japan said the company was now
conducting a string of tests on the stability control systems of
all its sport utility vehicles.
