Toyota Sienna Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your Toyota Sienna

Models with electric sliding doors can develop problems with the door mechanism. The cable in the door becomes frayed, which will damage the electric motor.

Multiple cracks may develop on the upper surface of the dashboard. At this time, the only suggested repair is to replace the dashboard.

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.

A fuel line in the engine compartment may develop a leak, which can cause a fire hazard. Dealers will inspect and replace any fuel lines in question free of charge to resolve the concern.

The shift control cable may bind, resulting in the shift indicator showing the incorrect gear as selected by the driver. This can result in the vehicle rolling away if park is selected and the vehicle is not actually in park. Dealers will inspect and replace the shift cable as necessary free of charge to resolve the problem.
