Parking Sensor Problem

Recommended Posts

New Es300h bought Feb. 19. Been driving Toyota since 1981 without a problem.

Parking sensors kick off in rain. Galway dealership tells me this is normal. Told them I didn't  pay in excess of €50,000 for a car that keeps flashing yellow lights at me every time I hit a shower of rain IN THE WEST OF IRELAND! Didn't  swear at her but was sorely tempted. In fairness, they took it back to check it out but it still kicks off in rain when in close proximity to other cars/objects but is not close enough to start up a warning.

Not going to let this go quietly. Would appreciate hearing from anyone else with similar problem.

Again, I am seriously peed off with having lights flashing at me in a shower of rain and more so peed off with a dealer telling me, in effect, grin and bear it!

Write/email, Toyota UK Head Office as if cannot be fixed it will probably lead to a recall by V.O.S.A.  of all Toyota vehicles as flashing lights will constitute a danger.

Hi

Thanks for replying, all of you.

I picked up on another post under the search 'parking sensor issue' by user 'gediredi' in the meantime and didn't  come back to my original post. Sorry for ignoring you, not intentional but I'm  not familiar with posting on a club website so I just followed what I found. There's  been a lot of interaction on the other post mentioned above. Short answer is that  Lexus Ireland will take back my car for a few days to replace  sensors, check it out and give me a loan car until it's  sorted. Will see how it goes.
