30-10-2016: The only standard size pick-up to fail Tecknikens Varld Moose Avoidance Test:

23-1-2017: Problem with Toyota Safety Sense camera of December 2016 Toyota Hilux flashing saying the windscreen was dirty which it wasn't. Owner spoke to supplying dealer who told him known fault awaiting a modification. 9 months later took truck in after many phone calls asking if the mod was available as it was very distracting. Upgraded camera, heater and body module reflash applied then system calibrated but it wouldn't calibrate. New camera and sonar sensor fitted still wouldn't calibrate. Dealer was instructed to put different calibration figures in so it then passed. Truck is lying now at the dealer unfit to drive. Toyota refuses to take the truck back for replacement. Owner argues the fault was reported on second day of driving and unfortunately he allowed them the time to come up with a remedy which hasn't been sucessful.
