2009 Toyota Sienna Recalls
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.
Toyota is recalling 1998–2010 Sienna models manufactured or registered in twenty-two Eastern and Midwestern states because of problems with the spare tire carrier and assembly cable due to road salt corrosion. This may cause the spare tire assembly cable to break and the spare tire to separate from the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash. Toyota will notify owners via letter with instructions on how to remedy the problem. For a list of the affected states, call Toyota at 1-800-331-4331.
These vehicle were sold without the required load carrying captivity modification label. Dealers will mail the corrected label to vehicle owners. Owners have the option of requesting that the dealer install the label. This recall is expected to begin on May 27, 2010.
