When pushed to its limits on our track's handling course, the rear of the GX we bought slid out until the vehicle was almost sideways before the electronic stability control system was able to regain control," it said.
"We believe that in real-world driving, that situation could lead to a rollover accident, which could cause serious injury or death."
However, it also said that it was not aware of any such reported incidents.
