Toyota announces a recall for the 2022 Sienna. The recall involves an issue with its seat belts, which may not be able to do what they’re supposed to do in the first place. To be precise, 2,259 units of the 2022 Toyota Sienna are affected by faulty seat belts. The affected vehicles are equipped with second row outboard seat belts that were manufactured with an incorrect D-ring, causing the low friction directional insert to face the wrong direction.


Accordingly, the document which was published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) says there is an increased possibility that the seat belt material could “clump together” and lead to damage to the seat belt material that could lead to tearing in certain types of crashes.

As mentioned, 2,259 units of the 2022 Toyota Sienna are affected, and all of them are the eight-passenger version that was produced from September 16, 2021 through October 5, 2021. Although seat belts are a critical safety feature, this repair is quite an easy one.

Toyota should simply exchange the incorrect seat belt assemblies for new ones with the correct D-ring. As usual, this recall is free of charge and will be carried out at your local Toyota dealership. Affected owners will be contacted by January 16, 2022.

Completely redesigned for the 2021 model year, the Toyota Sienna now rides on the TNGA-K platform, just like the Venza, Avalon, Camry, RAV4, Highlander, to name a few. It is powered solely by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder hybrid powertrain that has a combined output of 243 horsepower. There’s even an all-wheel-drive (AWD) version that comes with additional electric motors powering the rear wheels.

Earlier this year, Toyota introduced a Woodland edition of the Toyota Sienna to appeal to SUV buyers. The Sienna Woodland Edition comes with a 0.6-inch suspension lift for increased ground clearance, unique 18-inch wheels, exclusive cement exterior color, tow hook with up to 3 towing capacity 500 lbs, black exterior badging and dark chrome exterior trim.
