Turn off lane departure? I did.

I'd recommend it only on long trips with no traffic, in traffic, it can push you towards a car you are trying to avoid, that happened sort of to me, so I turned it off, I trust my human self more than these computers to drive.

You mean lane tracing/assist? Yeah it's only for freeway driving, unlike Tesla's AP it doesn't sense cars in adjacent lanes so I wouldn't rely on that feature in dense city traffic.

I love the strength of the steering correction in the 2019 Rav4 vs my 2018 Highlander Hybrid Limited Platinum.

I actually asked the dealer if they could turn up the strength/intensity of the correction on my Highlander to match what I have on the Rav4's I rent each week while on business trips. A quick "no" was the answer.

I'm a little worried about the fact that the car is **nearly but not completely** self-driving on freeways with all the lane departure / adaptive cruise control options enabled. The disconnection seems dangerous on long trips with tired drivers, but YMMV.

You will need Highlander 2020 for that

somewhat off the point but if you don't keep your hands on the wheel it will yell at you. It did it to me when I had one hand on the bottom of the wheel, as a test.

tferrio, I did the same test and it yelled at me too..... in Dallas traffic as well as New Jersey, it did a phenomenal job of keeping me in my lane, applying brakes when needed, and accelerating in stop and go traffic..... my main reason for looking at a new vehicle isn't become my current Toyota is worn out, its for the better safety tech of the 2019 Rav4 and the 2020 Highlander (we will keep our 2018 Highlander)

I can see where this may make sense and be useful, i.e. long rural uncongested highways, but for usual driving I found it distracting and unnatural, so I've turned it off as well.
