Toyota may do it, who knows. Or any garage will probably do it.

The sensors will cost anywhere between $100 to $400 each, multiply by 2 because you need 1 on each side. Prices are from ebay. I don't know what the installation process is like. If it's anywhere similar to Civic, the mechanic will need to dissemble the rear bumper, front bumper, and pretty much all of the interior (front mid and rear door trims, carpet, center console, trunk, etc) and reprogramming is required. For labour cost, you are gonna look at $1000+++. Just an estimate from myself, who has no experience in installing such devices.

People will believe what they want to believe whether fact or fiction.
'tis most frustrating when they aren't open to see and/or learn which is which.

It is good exercise to keep the neck flexible. I learned that as an undergrad in Kinesiology.

Before BSM, we who did that at least in Canada, are paying much lower insurance premiums.

There's a few good reason why many living things can turn their heads to the side. It's definitely not relegated to just when driving.
