Toyota Canada is asking owners of affected vehicles to bring their vehicles to their local dealership for an inspection in order to assess the condition of the spare tire carrier assembly and the potential for separation. All-wheel drive vehicles are not impacted by this voluntary recall campaign as they are equipped with run-flat tires in place of a spare.
All affected owners will be formally notified by first-class mail, beginning in May, 2010 concerning this campaign. Once the remedy has been developed, customers will be re-notified and advised of the remedy availability.
The 2011 Sienna is not affected by this safety recall, and no other Lexus or Toyota vehicles are involved.
