2008 Toyota Sienna Recalls

Seat Heater

Southeast Toyota is recalling certain vehicles because the seat heater element may become damaged as a result of compression of the seat cushion. The damaged element could short causing burning of the seat cushion, increasing the risk of personal injury. Dealers will disconnect seat heaters with copper strand elements and refund the purchase price of the seat heater accessory to correct this concern.

Spare Tire Carrier Cable May Break

The spare tire carrier cable may break due to corrosion from road salt. Dealers will initially move the spare tire and relocate it to the luggage compartment free of charge if parts are unavailable. When parts are available, dealers will replace the spare tire carrier assembly with an improved one free of charge to resolve the concern.

The Shift Interlock System May Fail

The shift lock system prevents the shift lever from being moved out of the Park position unless the brake pedal is depressed. These vehicles are being recalled because the shift lock solenoid could fail rendering the shift lock system inoperable. If the shift lever is moved out of the Park position when the brakes are not applied the vehicle could roll unexpectedly, increasing the risk of a crash. When parts become available, dealers will replace the shift lock solenoid to correct this concern.
