Brake brake. Brake then stopped me dead in the road the 40ton arctic driver pulled a miracle and managed to steer away from me !!!

This is a serious incident and you should mention it to your dealer plus Toyota Europe.

Did you check the radar area? Could it be some trash dropped on it?

The manual does say that the front side of the badge right in front of the radar sensors needs to be clear from raindrops.
The rear side of the front Toyota badge also needs to be clean. I am wondering if a hydrophobic coating that repels water could help. These coatings usually last several years. Not all of these coatings are suitable for unpainted parts like headlights and badges but i am sure there is a coating out there we could use.

Any chance it was not the pre-collision system but the radar cruise control that was on? I have had that start to pull me up sharp with nothing apparently in front, but a car just to one side, like in a layby or slip road.
All the best

Hi Alex
I did'nt have cruise on for sure the car has been recently having little issues but this just capped it off really
I have currently head unit issues freezing no dab detection I found out yesterday on Toyota website that my car is part of a petrol tank recall and no one has notified me
And to top it off the car has ADHD lol
I personally feel that the first batch of chr of which mine is defiantly one have got teething problems but happening in the safety systems that nearly caused a rtc
I am quite happy to replace the car I love it but not this car !! It has issues.
I don't spend £30k to buy issues
I just hope Toyota hold there hands up admit the issues on the car are too much and do The honourable thing
I don't need or want to have to resort to other measures

Just for reference it was a dry day and car was clean 👍

Infotainment freezing solved with software update for most. No one was notified of fuel tank recall - it's checked on the next service. DAB depends on package.

You have currently head unit issues freezing no dab detection.
Is this started after the replacement of your windscreen ?
