Toyota is recalling nearly 750,000 2011-2016 Toyota Sienna’s, manufactured January 4, 2010, to August 12, 2016.
This recall is due to the vehicle’s power doors. If the power sliding door can’t open when commanded, i.e. if the door is frozen shut, it may subsequently open unexpectedly at a later period, possibly while the vehicle is moving.
If these doors were to opens while the vehicle is moving, there would, of course, be an increased risk of injury to the vehicle occupants.
Consumer Affairs reports that the remedy for this recall is still under development. Interim notices are expected to be mailed to owners by January 21, 2017.
Owners, however, may contact Toyota customer service at 1-800-331-4331. Toyota’s number for this recall is G04.
