(TORONTO, ON – October 18, 2017) Toyota Canada Inc., announced that it is conducting a safety recall of certain Model Year 2005 – 2007, 2009 and 2010 Sienna vehicles in Canada. Approximately 23, 500 vehicles are involved.

In the involved vehicles, grease inside the shift lever assembly could transfer to other internal components, causing them to function improperly.  This could allow the shift lever to be moved out of the “Park” position without depressing the brake pedal.  If this occurs when the parking brake is not engaged, it could lead to a vehicle rollaway and increase the risk of a crash.

For all involved vehicles, Toyota dealers will replace the shift lock solenoid with a new one, remove the grease, and reapply an appropriate amount of grease at no cost to customers.   All known owners of the involved vehicles will be notified by first class mail by mid-December.

Information about automotive recalls, including but not limited to the list of involved vehicles, is subject to change over time. For the most up-do-date Safety Recall information on Toyota vehicles, customers should check their vehicle’s status by visiting toyota.ca/recall and entering the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). For any additional questions, customer support is also available by calling Toyota Customer Interaction Centre at 1-888-TOYOTA-8 (1-888-869-6828).
