The button that opens the fuel door when the release is pulled is so tense, you can hardly push it in. It broke the hinge on my fuel door and the door won't close properly. How do you adjust it so it's not as tense?

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.

82 vehicles manufactured by Eldorado National-Kansas (ENK) may have a condition where the left rear shock absorber can contact the fuel filler neck. These vehicles are all modified versions of the Toyota Sienna. The resulting damage could cause a fuel leak, increasing the risk of a fire. ENK dealers will relocate the rear shock absorbers and add a spacer to correct this concern.

Vehicles have a tire size/weight rating label to inform owners of the carrying capacity of their vehicle. These models are being recalled because the incorrect vehicle weight rating is shown on the information label. This could result in vehicle and tire overloading, increasing the risk of tire failure. Owners will be provided an updated vehicle weight label to correct this concern.

I bought my 2011 Sienna LE in 2010 shortly after they came out. Although I had read commentary about the cheaper plastic interior, I liked the car alot and it came with lots of standard features - even a backup cam.
