2014 Toyota Sienna Recalled For Potential Rollaway Issue

The recall only covers 263 vehicles, built from June 17 through June 24, 2014. Many of which are likely still at the dealership; but it's a particularly important recall, as the issue could lead to injuries of those getting in or out of the vehicles, or others in a rolling vehicle's path.

The root of the issue is that a protective sleeve for the shift cable might have been damaged during vehicle assembly. Affected vehicles will have their transmission shift control cable inspected and replaced, if necessary, at the dealership.
