Had my '10 in for a recalibration since the owner's manual states that after an alignment this should be done (extra $120 at the dealership for a 15 minute job).
The VSC still goes off around corners when hitting a rough patch of asphalt.
There is nothing safe about this. I can now anticipate it but worry that a new driver (like my wife or daughter) is going to freak when this beeping flashing shaking stuff happens to them. Just because I put on bigger tires and new shocks and coil-overs raising the truck about 2 inches? Come on.
The dealership admitted they are having the same problems with a Tacoma they sold with a lift kit pre-installed.
One other annoyance: the gas pedal delay from a standing start. Basically I can't see this whole trend towards computerization making sense for truck owners.
If you unplug one of the wheel sensors in the front it will create an error with the vsc and turn it off. if you want, you can also install a switch in line with the sensor so you can turn it on or off
Edit: this also disables abs
