Plano, TX - Toyota Motor North America, Inc., announced that it is conducting a safety recall of approximately 744,000 Model Year 2011-2016 Toyota Sienna vehicles in the U.S.
In the involved vehicles, there is a possibility that, under certain limited conditions, if the sliding door opening operation is impeded, the sliding door motor circuit could be overloaded, opening the fuse for the motor. 

If this occurs when the door latch is in an unlatched position, the door could open while driving, increasing the risk of injury to a vehicle occupant.
Toyota is currently developing the remedy for this condition.  All known owners of the involved vehicles will be notified by first class mail by mid-January.

What does this have to do with the Satmar Rebbe's being freed from the Nazis? Also, a recall just means they'll fix it.
