Toyota recalls 310000 Sienna minivans for rollaway risk

Toyota recalls 310000 Sienna minivans for rollaway risk”

Toyota says the recall covers more than 347,000 Sienna minivans worldwide from the 2005 to 2007 and 2009 to 2010 model years.

Toyota Motor Corp.is recalling about 310,000 Sienna minivans in the U.S.to fix shift levers that could move out of park, perhaps causing the vehicle to roll away.

The problem lies in the shift lever assembly, where excess grease can transfer and cause the internal components to function improperly.

"If this occurs when the parking brake is not engaged, it could lead to a vehicle rollaway and increase the risk of a crash".

As par for the course, Toyota will replace all of the affected cars' shift lock solenoids and regrease, free of charge.

Last year, Toyota pulled about 744,000 Sienna minivans in the US because of a problem that causes sliding doors to open while the vehicle is moving. Owners of the affected vehicles will receive notification in the mail by mid-December.
