On Nov. 22, 2016, Toyota issued a safety recall for about 744,000 model year 2011 – 2016 Toyota Sienna Mini-Vans.
In certain vehicles, under certain conditions, it’s possible that the sliding door locking mechanism could allow the door to slide open while vehicle is in motion.
The way these safety recalls work is that a limited about of vehicles are typically effected, not all vehicles. It’s always best to check the manufacture website with your VIN# to see if your vehicle is one that is under the recall notice. Typically, the manufacture (Toyota in this case) will know which vehicles have the effected part and can just recall that specific vehicle with the faulty part.
