    So far this is what I’ve turned off on my 2WD 2022 Limited.
    *LDA
    *BSM
    *PCS
    *Auto High beam
    *Traction / VSC
    *Will never use Parking Assist
    *If I knew how to turn off Auto LDS I would
    *Deleted the Toyota apt on my phone, got tired of getting alerts telling me that a door is open. I know the @#$*%$&# door is open, I’m standing right next to the truck !!!
    *I’m blocking calls from Sirius radio, they call constantly.
    *I will never use Radar Cruise Control.

    They put so much technology in a car, that they have to add technology to help with the distractions from the technology in the car. It’s a catch 22.

    Oh look, another mod....
    I've turned off a lot of women in my Tacoma. FACT.

    ....I've also turned off the wireless charging pad.

    So I’ll be the first to ask, why did you not just get a SR if you don’t like tech?

    Good question. I have never had this new a ride before. My last new car was a 2002 Yukon, before that was a 1979 Chevy stepside. I had no idea new rides have so much stuff in them. I guess I’m a dinosaur, lol.

    I always leave Parking Assist off. I back down a slight incline into my garage. Parking Assist thinks my garage floor is an object. My Wife pulls in front first. Both our driver doors open in the middle of the garage making it convenient going into the house.

    Buys new truck. Hates new things.

    I'll add... Some of the things are silly but I have no issues with traction control for every day driving and radar cruise is great.

    Seatbelt dinger. I don't use the LDA or auto high beam mostly due to false positives.

    The rest works pretty good, especially radar cruise control, I doubt I'll buy a new car without it.

    As far as the traction control systems, they just sit there being passive until the driver screws up, and are easy to deactivate for intentional shenanigans.

    You're missing the turn signal chime. Got rid of that one myself.

    Do you mean "Auto LSD"? If so, what's the point in turning that off?
    Only thing I turned off if is the lane departure warning because the system doesn't like the twisty, winding country roads where I live.
    EDIT: Forgot about auto high beams. Another thing that doesn't work for twisty country roads.

    My seat belt dingers. I wear a seat belt all the time except when offroad and didn't want to deal with it. Also the Qi charger has already warped the plate in that cubby so I keep it off because useless.

    Ha, I figured I’d catch some grief from my post. That’s okay, I got a thick skin. I do like the truck though, it rides good and the heated seats are nice. The biggest down side for me is knowing that other than routine maintenance there is no way I’m gonna be able to work on this truck. Oil change, rotate tires, filters, plugs … beyond that I probably got no chance. My old Yukon and old Chevy truck I could do just about everything but overhaul the tranny and engine.
    Now I’m gonna go outside and yell at the clouds and tell the neighbor’s kids to “ get off my lawn”, lol

    I hope he’s not using that new fangled internet. I think it’s just a fad anyways.
