    On November 22, 2016, Toyota filed a Defect Information Report with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) informing the agency of our intent to conduct a voluntary Safety Recall on 2011 – 2016 model year Sienna vehicles.

    Condition:
    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.

    Covered Vehicles:
    There are approximately 744,400 2011 – 2016 model year Sienna vehicles covered by this Safety Recall. Approximately 1,700 vehicles involved in this Safety Recall were distributed to Puerto Rico.

    Owner Letter Mailing Date:
    Toyota will begin to notify owners in December 2016.

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.

    Under what circumstances may the sliding door opening operation become impeded?
    In the majority of cases, this condition has occurred in cold climate areas when the sliding door becomes frozen with ice, impeding the door opening operation.
