In certain driving situations, the optional Pre-Collision System (PCS), on the involved vehicles could interpret a steel road joint or steel plate in the road surface as an obstacle or vehicle in the path of travel and activate. When the system activates, the vehicle’s brakes are applied automatically, the system activates Brake Assist mode, and the front seat belts may tighten. The driver will hear a warning buzzer, the PCS indicator lamp will illuminate, and a message will appear on the multi-information display.
Any authorized Toyota dealer will replace certain PCS components with improved ones at NO CHARGE.
