Toyota Recalls Van Citing Spare Tire Issues

Toyota Sienna

Toyota is recalling 70,000 Sienna minivans, most of those a second time, because the spare tire mounted under the vehicle might fall off.

Involved are the 2004-2011 Siennas, be it sold or originally registered in the cold-weather states where corrosive salt is used to de-ice roads.

Toyota says the salt can be blamed for eating away the mechanism holding the spare tire on and cause it to fall off.
