Nearly three quarters of a million Toyota Siennas are being recalled over the possibility their sliding doors can open while driving, the auto manufacturer announced Tuesday.
The recall affects minivans between model years 2011 and 2016, and the company is currently developing a fix. Owners will be notified by mid-January when a remedy for the problem is established for the 744,000 vehicles affected.
The recall was prompted by a set of conditions that can cause Sienna motor circuits to overload, opening the door if it's latch is in an unlatched position. That only occurs if the sliding door opening operation is impeded, Toyota said.
Customers can call 800-331-4331 for more information, or they can look up their vehicle identification number at toyota.com/recall to see if their vehicle is impacted.
