Has anyone ever experienced a sudden activation of the VSC system while driving under normal conditions? I was driving 65 mph on the highway going straight on dry pavement and suddenly a buzzer sounded, the VSC light came on, and the steering wheel and brakes were taken over by the VSC system and the car started weaving out of control. I could not steer or break the car. The car stayed on the road but weaved out of my lane, then the buzzer and light went off and I was able to pull off to the break down lane. My children and I were clearly in a life threatening situation. It happened again as I slowly got off the highway where I parked the car and had it towed to a Toyota dealership.
I am told by Toyota that the steering angle sensor needs to be replaced for $700.00. Still, I am terrified to drive the car.
