    I used the crawl control on my 2019 OR yesterday for the first time. I was in 4LO and selected a mid point on the speed input dial. When going down a slight hill the truck started making grinding noises and the truck started moving in a jerky manner. I I was not a very slick area, is this normal? to make noise and move in a jerky manner? or is something wrong with my truck?

    Thanks

    Pretty freaky right? Sounds like the anti rollback on start feature? Unfortunately that's the sound that crawl contril makes while using the brakes to maintain speed. Try it uphill or flat and it will make you hate it just a little less.

    Normal, it's using the ABS to control wheel speed.

    Sounds normal. Crawl control makes some weird noises and I wouldn’t call it smooth.

    I don't have crawl control - but from watching reviews on youtube - I think toyota may have the worst crawl control software calibration of any brand

    It's normal. Be sure not to touch the pedals when engaged.

    If the whole truck sounds like it’s falling apart, crawl control is engaged and working properly!

    thank you for your input from YouTube reviews instead of personal experience. Were the videos titled “YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE THE SOUND MY TOYOTA TACOMA MAKES”?

    BUCKLE UP! It makes it harder for Aliens to pull you out of your Truck.
    Hotels used to have beds that did that for a quarter.
