In a continuing effort to update our readers on Auto Recalls, Toyota has recalled 210,000 Sienna minivans because their tires and/or rims fail to satisfy the Federal Safety Standards. The failure to properly rate the load capacity on the Sienna’s display could cause an overload of the car and lead to tires which fail! Don’t risk crashing. Get the corrected Sienna information from Toyota by calling Toyota at (800) 331-4331. You can use NHTSA ID number 11V560000.
Toyota also recalled 420,000 additional vehicles, which include the 2004 Avalon, the 2005/2005 Camry, Highlander and Sienna, 2006 Highlander Hybrid and Lexus models 2004 and 2005 Lexus ES330 and 2006 RX400H. The recall is due to the power steering pump which can detach from the system. Only the 1MZ-FE and 3MZ-FE engines were affected by this problem. The recall should start this month with local dealers ready to inspect and repair your Toyota. Owners may contact Toyota at the number noted above.
