Recall Alert: 2010-2011 Toyota Corolla, 2011 Toyota Sienna

Toyota Corolla
More than 500 2010-11 Toyota Corollas and 2011 Toyota Siennas are being recalled due to the potentially flawed installation of aftermarket navigation, overhead entertainment and Bluetooth systems by Southeast Toyota Distributors, the world’s largest Toyota franchise distributor with 173 dealerships in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, North Carolina and South Carolina, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. 

During the installation of aftermarket non-Toyota Bluetooth, overhead entertainment and navigation systems, an installer at the facility was found to not be following instructions. On the 518 affected vehicles, the retention clip for the A-pillar trim may have been damaged, which could allow the trim panel to come loose and potentially injure vehicle occupants in a crash. Southeast Toyota estimates that approximately 25% of the vehicles listed have damaged A-pillar covers.

Southeast Toyota dealers will inspect the A-pillar trim panel and replace it if necessary free of charge. The recall is expected to begin this month. Owners can call Southeast Toyota at 800-301-6859 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
