Toyota Recalls Sienna Minivans for Roll Away Problems
Toyota Recalls Sienna Minivans
Toyota announced a recall for 615,000 Sienna minivans for a problem related to the gearshift lever that could cause the vehicle to roll away. The shift lever could possibly become damaged causing it move out of “Park” without the driver moving the gearshift or depressing the brake pedal.
The recall affects the Sienna minivans made in 2004-2005 and 2007-2009. There are reports of 21 accidents, mostly minor, with two injuries resulting from the defect. Toyota plans on contacting the owners of these vehicles by mail.
