Toyota recalls all 2010 Lexus GX 460 SUVs

WASHINGTON - A Transportation Department official says Toyota will recall the 2010 Lexus GX 460 to address a potential problem with the SUV rolling over.

The recall affects about 6,000 vehicles that have been sold since the SUV went on sale in late December. Consumer Reports issued a "don't buy" warning last week on the 2010 GX 460, saying its test indicate the sport utility vehicle is susceptible to rolling over.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because no formal announcement has been made.

Toyota responded by halting sales of new GX 460s and conducting tests on all of its SUVs.

The automaker also agreed to pay a record $16.4 million fine on Monday for failing to properly report a safety problem with defective gas pedals.
