Summary:
Toyota is recalling certain model year 2004 avalon vehicles; 2004 and 2005 camry, camry solara, highlander, and sienna vehicles, 2006 highlander hybrid; 2004 and 2005 lexus es330 and rx330; and 2006 lexus rx400h vehicles manufactured from june 1, 2004 through march 31, 2005, equipped with the 1mz-fe or 3mz-fe engine. the amount of adhesive agent applied between the outer ring and the torsional rubber damper (inner ring) in the crankshaft pulley may be inadequate. if the adhesive is insufficient, there is a possibility that the outer ring may become misaligned and it may not properly rotate with the inner ring, causing noise and/or illumination of the battery discharge indicator light.
Consequence:
In some cases, the belt for the power steering pump may become detached from the pulley which could result in a loss of power steering and a sudden increase in steering effort, increasing the risk of a crash.
How to Fix:
Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will check the crankshaft pulley to identify whether it was produced by the u.s. supplier. if so, the dealer will replace the pulley with a new one at no charge. the safety recall is expected to begin during early january 2012. owners may contact toyota at 1-800-331-4331.

Recall Date: 01-16-2009 Affected Vehicles: 26,501
Component:
Vehicle speed control:accelerator pedal
Summary:
Toyota is conducting a safety improvement campaign involving 26,501 early 2004 my sienna vehicles. in the event the retention clip used to secure the floor carpet cover is missing, the cover can interfere with the operation of the accelerator pedal if the acceleration pedal is depressed to nearly the full throttle position.
Consequence:
If this occurs, the accelerator pedal can become stuck which could result in a vehicle crash.
How to Fix:
Dealers will replace the retention clip and floor carpet cover at no charge. the campaign began on january 26, 2009. owner notification is expected to be completed by early april 2009. owners may contact toyota at 1-888-270-9371, if they have any further questions.
Recall Number: 80C Recall Date: 06-03-2008 Affected Vehicles: 196,222
Component:
Structure:body:hatchback/liftgate
Summary:
Toyota is conducting a safety improvement campaign involving 196,222 my 2004-2006 toyota sienna vehicles equipped with power rear liftgate struts. the gas struts used to help lift and support the rear power liftgate could wear out sooner than expected. as the gas struts deteriorate, the performance of the liftgate will begin to degrade and the power rear liftgate will operate more slowly than when the gas struts were new.
Consequence:
If not repaired, the gas struts may not be able to support the weight of the liftgate when it is open eventually, the gas struts could deteriorate to the point that the liftgate will fall about ten inches after it reaches the fully open position, at which point the power motor will engage and power the liftgate to the fully closed position. this condition may cause injury to a person who is struck by the liftgate when it falls or when it is closing.
How to Fix:
Dealers will replace the gas struts with newly designed gas struts that have a longer service life. the campaign began on august 8, 2008, and will be mailed in three phases ending in late december 2008. owners may contact toyota at 1-888-270-9371.

Summary Description:
Tire pressure warning system failure
Summary Detail:
Odi opened pe06-010 based on 12 reports of alleged tire pressure warning system (tpws) failure on the subject vehicles.all reports alleged that the tpws warning light did not illuminate on the driver information panel when the tire pressure was low or the tire was flat.in some incidents, the consumer reported that tpws light did not illuminate when the tire pressure in 1 tire was at 15-20 psi and the other tires were at or near the recommended tire pressure.during pe06-010, additional failure data was identified as noted in the failure report summary above.as of july 25, 2006, odi was not aware of any allegations where the alleged defect resulted in a crash, an injury, or a fatality in the subject vehicles.in addition, odi is aware of only two incidents where a tire was reported to have caught on fire during the incident.in both incidents, fire damage was limited to the rear passenger tire and tire well and/or smoke damage to items in the vehicle.odi's analysis showed the following:(1) the subject vehicles use an indirect tpws system with p225/60r17bridgestone b380 or dunlop sp sport 4000 dsst run flat tires(rfts). (2) there is a large variability in the pressure and driving time atwhich the tpws will trigger the tpws warning light toilluminate. (3) the tpws may not make an accurate judgment under a variety ofroad or driving conditions, including if the vehicle is drivenover 62 mph, the outside temperature is below 32 degreesfahrenheit, the tread wear is uneven, the loading is overthe limit, or the pressure of 2 or more tires drops at the sametime. (see toyota's april 10, 2006 information request responsefor more details.) (4) some consumers reported that their tire pressure was below 15psi or even as low as 0 psi before they realized that they had atire pressure issue and as a result had to replace the tire. note: toyota states that if the tire pressure drops to below 15psi, the tire can not be repaired. (5) in april 2006, in response to reports of premature or uneven tirewear, toyota issued a customer support program to providesupplemental tire warranty coverage for 2004-early 2006 mysienna vehicles with rfts. (6) field data and nhtsa testing showed that the tpws on the 2004-2005 my toyota sienna 2wd vehicles, which use the same tpws as the subject vehicles, but have standard tires, performed betterthan tpws on the subject vehicles.due to the following reasons, odi has decided that further expenditure of agency resources on this investigation is not warranted at this time: (1) only a very small percentage of tpws and tire related complaints and warranty claims cited that the tpws did not illuminate on the subject vehicle during the incident.in the remaining tire related incidents, it was not possible to determine if the tpws contributed to the tire related failure. (2) odi is not aware of any incidents that were reported thatresulted in the driver losing vehicle control. (3) the field data did not establish a relationship between poortpws performance and tire incidents with safety consequencesaccordingly, this investigation is closed.the closing of this investigation does not constitute a finding by nhtsa that a safety-related defect does not exist.the agency will continue to monitor complaints and other information relating to the alleged defect in the subject vehicles and take further action in the future if warranted.

Seatbelt malfunction
Summary Detail:
The shoulder portion of the middle-row seatbelt webbing feeds through an opening in the seatbelt bezel located at the top of the seat.the bezel also contains a clip that covers a narrow slot in the bezel.the clip may become dislodged from use and allow the seat belt to become stuck in the narrow slot exposed by the dislodged clip. in addition to odi's 10 consumer complaints, toyota's letter response to the agency identifies 40 other consumer and field reports and 3,089 warranty repairs that required the replacement of the seatbelt bezel and/or clip.a stuck or jammed seatbelt does not offer proper occupant protection in the event of a vehicle crash.toyota has notified the agency by letter dated july 19, 2005 (amended in letter dated july 22, 2005), that it will recall 345,443 my 2004-2005 7-passenger and 8-passenger sienna vehicles built from the start of production up to may 18, 2005.toyota dealers will replace the seatbelt bezel and clip with an improved design on all vehicles.vehicles produced beginning may 18 already have the improved seatbelt bezel and clip.this investigation is closed.

Seatbelt malfunction
Summary Detail:
Odi received ten consumer complaints alleging that the middle-row passenger seatbelt webbing frequently jams in the integrated seatbelt guide housing slot.during normal body movement of the occupant, the webbing jams in the slot due to a dislodged cover plate, thus causing excess slack in the seatbelt assembly.toyota¿s letter response to the agency identifies 40 other consumer and field reports and 3,073 warranty repairs that require the replacement of the seatbelt guide assembly.in addition, there are another 16 warranty claims on my 2005 sienna vehicles.complainants expressed concern for children occupying the middle-row seats.they may not recognize the potential safety risk or be able to remedy a slack seatbelt.a slack or jammed seatbelt does not offer proper occupant protection in the event of a crash.toyota has implemented a recent design change to correct the problem.toyota will apply the design change to new production vehicles and although the design can be applied to earlier my 2004 and 2005 vehicles, toyota has not announced a safety recall for those vehicles.this investigation is upgraded to an engineering analysis (ea05-010) and will include my 2005 vehicles.
