Toyota Sienna Recall 10V620000

Toyota Recalls Certain 2011 Sienna Minivans Due to Stop Lamp Switch Bracket Damage

Recall Details

Toyota is recalling certain 2011 Sienna minivans because the stop lamp switch bracket may become damaged. The proximity of the stop lamp switch bracket and the parking brake pedal may result in damage to the bracket by the operator's foot during application of the parking brake. A damaged bracket may cause the brakes to drag, resulting in brake noise, vibration, and/or illumination of the brake warning light. Braking effectiveness could also be reduced, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will install a new stop lamp switch bracket to correct this issue.
