Sienna Recall 

Toyota is conducting a safety recall involving certain Sienna vehicles in the United States. Approximately 270 vehicles are involved in this recall.

During the manufacturing process of the passenger side front doors, it is possible that a component may not have been welded properly. This could affect an airbag system sensor and could lead to nondeployment or inadvertent deployment of the passenger side front seat and curtain shield airbags. This can increase the risk of injury or the possibility of a crash.  For all involved vehicles, Toyota dealers will replace the passenger side front door sub-assembly with a new one at no cost to customers.

Toyota will notify owners by mid-June.
