Below is information on the the Toyota Sienna recall please see article for details:
Toyota said it will recall 615,000 Sienna minivans to fix a problem with the gearshift lever that could cause the vehicle to roll away when it is parked.
Toyota said the recall affects vehicles from the 2004-2005 and 2007-2009 model years.
There is a problem with the shift lever assembly that creates the possibility that it will move out of the "P," or park, position without the driver depressing the brake pedal, Toyota said.
"We know of 21 [related] accidents, mostly minor property damage, and there are two reports of minor injuries," said Cindy Knight, a Toyota spokesperson.
Toyota said it will attempt to contact owners of the vehicles by mail, and ask them to bring their minivans to a Toyota dealer for replacement of the shift lock solenoid.
The company said that drivers who might have purchased a used Sienna and want to see if their vehicle is on the recall list can go to www.toyota.com/recall and type their 17-digit vehicle identification number into a form to look it up.

Toyota Announces Voluntary Recall to Replace Wiper Switches
Toyota Motor Sales, USA, Inc. today announced that it will conduct a non-compliance recall involving approximately 10,000 Model Year 2013 - 2014 Camry, Camry Hybrid, 2013MY Avalon, Avalon Hybrid and 2014MY Corolla vehicles to replace the wiper switch.
During manufacture of the wiper switch assembly in the involved vehicles, certain contacts on the switch terminal could have been manufactured incorrectly. This could lead to a potential short if the wiper is moved from OFF to the MIST setting. A short can cause the windshield wipers to become inoperative.
Owners of the involved vehicles will be notified by first class mail to return their vehicles to a Toyota dealer for replacement of the wiper switch.
