Toyota LandCruiser: hill start assist not working

Asked by John Ball

I have a new Toyota LandCruiser Sahara, which has hill start assist, but I've noticed that it will still roll back, making an ABS type noise (as if brakes are being intermittently applied), unless I handbrake or left foot the brake pedal prior to moving off when on a hill? The Toyota dealer advised that all other Toyota models with HSA will not roll back and that it is an inherent design of the LandCruiser that it will still roll back – but at a slower rate than if it didn't have HSA. Is he having me on?

I don't believe they are having you on. You might experience some small amount of rollback when the brakes are released, and the noise you are hearing is most likely the traction control working.
