Toyota recalls year 2011-2016 Toyota Sienna minivans over failure of power sliding door

Toyota Motor Corporation


Toyota is recalling certain model year 2011-2016 Toyota Sienna minivans manufactured January 4, 2010, to August 12, 2016. If the power sliding door is unable to be opened when commanded, such as if the door is frozen shut, the door may subsequently open unexpectedly, possibly while the vehicle is moving.

If door opens while the vehicle is moving, there would be an increased risk of injury to the vehicle occupants.

744,437 vehicles are affected by the recall

The remedy for this recall is still under development. Interim notices are expected to be mailed to owners by January 21, 2017.

The notice was received. Iin my communications with the company, they have no idea when they will come up with a fix. We paid extra for these doors. If we knew this issue would steal some value of our purchase from us we would have bought the Honda.

First it was passenger side airbag with no repair in site for the 2011 sienna. The fix for that was to not let anyone ride in that seat!!!! Now, don't use your power sliding doors. I paid over 32k to have a minivan that carries 8 passengers, not 7 and one with bells and whistles to ease loading of kids with power sliding doors. A young hold can not open these door without the power, they are hard for me to open as an adult without the power. Shame shame on Toyota. I'd be fine if they gave me what I paid in trade for a like vehicle that works.
