Toyota Recall Expands to Include 600,000 Sienna Minivans

Posted on May 06, 2010

The Toyota recall debacle continues, as the popular automaker has announced that it will recall 600,000 Sienna Minivans due to safety issues. The recall was announced on April 16, 2010 around the time that Toyota was faced with a record-breaking $16.4 million fine levied by the federal government in connection with the massive recall from earlier this year.

The Sienna Minivan recall was prompted by a danger of rusting spare tire cables that could potentially snap while driving, causing a serious roadway hazard for the minivan and other drivers. The latest Toyota recall includes Sienna Minivans manufactured between 1998 and 2010 with two-wheel drive.

Because the issue of rusting is related to the road salts used to melt ice during winter months, only vans sold and driven in certain parts of the country are affected.

Only Sienna Minivans sold in the following states are included in the Toyota recall:
Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Maryland, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Virginia, Vermont, Wisconsin and West Virginia, as well as the District of Columbia.

There have been no reported accidents associated with the recalled Toyota vans, but consumers are urged to stay alert to the safety risk in the interest of preventing unnecessary dangers. A car accident caused by a defective product that results in serious injury may be grounds for a product liability lawsuit, personal injury or wrongful death claim.
