Recall Alert: Toyota Recalls Sienna

Toyota Recalls 2011 Sienna

Dec 14, 2010

Toyota’s list of recalls is already long, and it keeps growing. The automaker is voluntarily recalling about 94,000 Toyota Sienna minivans from the 2011 model year. The affected vehicles were produced before early November 2010.

“The recall is a result of a Stop Lamp Switch Bracket placed near the parking brake,” Autoblog explains. “When the parking brake is fully applied it may deform the switch bracket. This could result in the brake lights remaining lit or even partial engagement of the brakes resulting in a reduction of brake effectiveness over time.”

While this recall adds to the millions of vehicles Toyota red flagged in the past year, there is some good news. No accidents, injuries or deaths had resulted from the faulty bracket.

Toyota explains that Sienna owners “will receive an interim notification advising them of this recall by first class mail beginning in mid-January 2011, along with instructions for what to do if they experience this condition and how to minimize the possibility of inadvertently contacting the stop lamp switch bracket while operating the parking brake. Toyota will also post this information on its website.”

Owners will get another notification in February in mid-January 2011. At that time, they can make an appointment at any Toyota dealer to remedy the problem free of charge.

Sienna owners may contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331.
