I had the exact same problem on my brand new 2016 Corolla with only 1000 miles. It's at the dealer now being serviced. So far they have replaced the rotation sensor and a computer part. They called me day before yesterday and said the car was fixed but the same exact problem recurred as soon as I left the dealer so it's back being serviced some more. It's getting close to "lemon" status. Did your problem get resolved? If so, what was the issue?
