The magazine has labeled the sport utility vehicle as such due to what they call dangerous handling problems, both the Times and the Post said, which they believe could lead to a rollover and possibly "serious injury or death."
Toyota quickly suspended sales of the vehicle following the report Tuesday, both the Times and the Post said.
This is the first time since 2001 that Consumer Reports has issued a similar "don't buy" warning, both the Times and the Post said. They issued it because the vehicle failed the federal government's system for reviewing new models.
Lexus has not yet voluntarily recalled the vehicle, the Times said, but they are willing to provide a loaner for any concerned customers.
