Seat Belts That Could Tear In Crash Prompt Recall Of 2022 Toyota Sienna

Toyota has recalled the 2022 Sienna minivan because of a problem with its seat belts.

Toyota states that impacted 2022 Sienna models are equipped with seat belt assemblies for the outboard second-row seats that use a directional low-friction insert in the D-ring to minimize ‘bunching’ and/or point loading during crashes. It has been discovered that certain vehicles may have an incorrect D-ring. This means the seat belt assembly could be facing in the wrong direction.

Accidents can cause seatbelt material to become brittle or tear in the event of a crash.

Total recall covers 2,259 Toyota Siena models. All were made between September 16, 2021, and October 5, 2021.

Toyota dealers will notify owners of the problem by January 16th, 2022. The dealer will replace the second-row outboard seat belt assemblies by using ones manufactured properly.

It is almost identical to the 2022 Toyota Sienna, which was launched in 2020. It is based on the automaker’s TNGA-K platform and is sold exclusively with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder hybrid with two electric motors that produces 243 hp. You could also use this powertrain to create an electronic on-demand AWD system. This uses an additional independent electric motor that powers the rear wheels when needed.
