Does anyone know why the Passport shakes the steering wheel and brake sometimes when there is oncoming traffic? This seems to happen when other vechicles are approaching quickly on single lane roads. The camera system triggers it for no reason from time to time. Does anyone know how to turn this off?

Perhaps the camera system is out of alignment. Mine never does this and I drive mostly 2 lane highways. Go to your dealer and explain the problem. I have read where the sensors need realignment after windshield replacement also.

You can adjust the sensitivity, it's in the manual.

This only happens to me while making a sweeping right turn and there is a car coming the opposite direction. But it has to be in the right spot where my car thinks I’m going to collide.

@SteveZ Do you know what section of the manual this is under? I can't seem to find it and don't know what to look for really. Couldn't find much when I searched for sensitivity.

Here's a link to the manual, this forum doesn't let you paste links because it thinks it spam

@cevwvu Thanks, its called the "Collision Mitigation Braking System" and I don't think you can adjust it, other than turning it off or on.

Just checked mine out. I have a Touring model and I went to the center screen and chose settings. Then choose vehicle and finally chose driver assist. I could then customize my settings. I made lane departure WIDE because if you try to avoid potholes and it's on normal you get the BRAKE warning. Make sure engine is running and in park when making this adjustments. Good Luck, Steve

@SteveZ and @cevwvu I configured the setting to WIDE and drove it for a week, but it still doesn't seem to work. The sensors still trigger when oncoming traffic is driving. Any ideas what to try next?

Mine does it from time to time. If I drove more well-travelled, winding two-lane roads it would probably drive me crazy.

Interesting thing about all these safety features: it has caused me to subtly change some of my driving habits, which is a good thing.

Try going to Vehicle then Driver Assist and set to Normal
Set Acc Beep to OFF
Road Departure to WIDE
Lane Keep to OFF
Blind Spot to Audible and Visual
This is how mine is set and I don't have any problems.
Hope this might help

There'a a button on the lower left of the steering wheel that disengages the sensitivity .. it needs to be disengaged every time you start the car. It actually sucks. The Passport is the first vehicle I've had that has all the new technology .. BRAKE warnings, steering wheel vibration (That always freaks me out ) ..lights, buzzers ... I programmed to less sensitivity thru the touchscreen .. but honestly I gave it 3 months and traded in .. back to a Tacoma for me!! I'd rather feel the road!

I hope you enjoy your new Tacoma. I had a couple of different Tacomas years ago and was excited to see the newest generation in 2017 and bought one. What a mistake (for me at least). I didn't like way it rode and shifted. Traded it in after 7 months for a 2017 Ridgeline and now in a 2019 Passport.
