Toyota recalls Sienna minivans
Toyota Motor Corp., the world's largest automaker, is recalling 94,126 model year 2011 Sienna minivans because brakes may become partially stuck.
Toyota, based in Toyota City, Japan, said it will recall Siennas produced from December 2009 through early November to replace the brake light switch bracket, which may become deformed when a driver presses on the foot-operated parking brake. That may cause brake lights to remain on or the brakes to partially engage, Toyota said in an e-mailed statement today.
Toyota said it doesn't know of any accidents or injuries related to the defect.
Toyota, which conducted the U.S. recall voluntarily, said in a filing with the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that it began receiving reports about brake pedals remaining partially engaged and brake lights staying on without the brake pedal being applied in December 2009.
