Not fitted as far as I'm aware (I'd love to be proved wrong).

Having looked through the owners manual which is about as thick as a bloody Argos caterlodge grrr lol . It talk's about pre crash or a precollision system fitted to stop the wife rear ending another car .ive not tried it out obviously I was going to get some cardboard boxes and try it out in a empty car park.

Depending on the type of system fitted the cardboard boxes thing might not work.  

Top gear tried it with a VW last season.  Because the VW camera is looking for the shape of a person it doesn't register a pile of boxes (or apparently someone on a bicycle as the shape is different).

I don't know how the Lexus system handles matters though?

Pre crash/collision warning system isn't for pedestrian use but for vehicle use. I've had it come up on my mondeo a few times.

As for speed camera warning beeps I don't know but useless again what the fuzz are testing. A zoom lens speed camera which can get a car 1 kilometre away.

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
