It’s been at least two days since Toyota was in the news, so here’s the latest: the automaker is recalling some 600,000 Sienna minivans manufactured between 1998 and 2010. In areas where road salt is used in winter, the cables that retain the spare tire under the rear of the vehicle can become corroded and break, creating a road hazard for vehicles following behind. Although Toyota doesn’t have a long term fix for the issue as of now, they will inspect Siennas in high risk states and replace corroded cables as required.

Toyota will mail notification to Sienna owners in effected states, and plans a follow-up mailing when a permanent solution has been developed.
