Summary:
TOYOTA IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2011 SIENNA VEHICLES. THE BRAKE STOP LAMP SWITCH IS MOUNTED ON A SMALL BRACKET WELDED ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE SERVICE BRAKE PEDAL SUPPORT ASSEMBLY. DUE TO ITS PROXIMITY TO THE PARKING BRAKE PEDAL, IN LIMITED CIRCUMSTANCES THE STOP LAMP SWITCH BRACKET COULD BE DAMAGED BY THE OPERATOR'S FOOT DURING PARKING BRAKE APPLICATION.

Consequence:
THIS COULD RESULT IN BRAKE DRAG WITH ASSOCIATED BRAKE NOISE, VIBRATION, AND/OR ILLUMINATION OF THE BRAKE WARNING LIGHT. BRAKING EFFECTIVENESS COULD BE REDUCED INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.

Remedy:
DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE BRACKET ASSEMBLY FREE OF CHARGE. TOYOTA PLANS TO MAIL AN INTERIM OWNER NOTIFICATION IN THE MIDDLE OF JANUARY 2011, TO ADVISE OWNERS OF THE RECALL. A SECOND LETTER WILL BE MAILED WHEN PARTS ARE AVAILABLE TO COMPLETE REPAIRS. OWNERS MAY CONTACT TOYOTA AT 1-800-331-4331.

Notes:
OWNERS MAY ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), OR GO TO HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV .
