TORONTO, ON., (November 26, 2014) – Toyota Canada Inc., announced plans to conduct a voluntary safety recall of approximately 2,027 Model Year 2015 Sienna minivans.
The involved vehicles are equipped with left and right side second row overhead assist grips mounted to the roof rails. In the event of a collision that results in deployment of a curtain shield airbag (CSA), an assist grip could detach from the mounting bracket under some conditions. If an assist grip completely detaches, it may contact an occupant, increasing the risk of injury in a crash.
Toyota is not aware of any injuries or fatalities caused by this condition.
Owners of the vehicles involved will receive a notification by mail. Toyota dealerships will modify the headliner under the second row overhead assist grips at no charge to the customer.
Information is available to customers by calling the Toyota Customer Interaction Centre at 1-888-TOYOTA-8 (1-888-869-6828).
