Approximately 270 model-year 2019 Toyota Sienna minivans are being recalled due to issues with the passenger side front doors. There is a possibility that during the manufacturing process of the passenger side front doors, a component may not have been welded properly, which could affect an airbag sensor, preventing deployment or causing inadvertent deployment of the passenger side front seat and curtain shield airbags, increasing the risk of injury or a crash.
Toyota will begin notifying owners by mid-June. Owners can call the automaker at 800-331-4331 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To fix the problem, dealers will replace the passenger side front door sub-assembly with a new one.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
