Filed under: Minivan/Van , Recalls , Safety , Toyota According to a report from Automotive News , Toyota is recalling more than 200,000 Sienna minivans from the 2011 and 2012 model years. But before you start worrying about reading the words ‘Toyota’ and ‘recall’ in the same sentence, know that this is for a very, very minor issue. The problem? The tire and load information placard has been misprinted, and can cause a situation where owners over-inflate the tires. Overloaded tires can potentially fail (read: burst), and can result in a crash. Toyota spokesperson Bryan Lyons told Automotive News that there isn’t a problem with any mechanical part of the Sienna itself, just the sticker. To remedy this situation, the automaker will mail new replacement placards to affected vehicle owners.
