    Lexus is a "Don't Buy"

    As an Arrested Development fan, I was laughing on the first paragraph. "Don't buy! Don't buy! Don't buy!" Sadly, I couldn't find the Jim Cramer video anywhere to post with it.

    They just had some more rollover problems this morning for Lexus SUV. They, the Toyota gurus, are studying the problem. Do not buy until they add rollover bars.

    Re: Lexus is a "Don't Buy"

    It sounds to me like most SUV's have this same problem but stability control helps lower the risk. It sounds like the Lexus' stability control doesn't kick in fast enough. If you watch the video you'll see that they are hauling *** to make this happen.

    This just confirms my opinion that all these drivers aids have made a lot of us bad drivers.
