(TORONTO, Ontario – November 22, 2016) Toyota Canada Inc. (TCI) announced that it is conducting a safety recall of approximately 60,000 Model Year 2011-2016 Toyota Sienna vehicles in Canada.

In the involved vehicles, there is a possibility that, under certain limited conditions, if the sliding door opening operation is impeded, the sliding door motor circuit could be overloaded, opening the fuse for the motor.  If this occurs when the door latch is in an unlatched position, the door could open while driving, increasing the risk of injury to a vehicle occupant.

Toyota is currently developing a remedy for this condition.  All known owners of the involved vehicles will be notified by first class mail.

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).
