Toyota recall: What you need to know

According to a news release, when the sliding door is “impeded,” a motion 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 said.

There’s no word whether there have been any injuries or deaths as a result of the issue.

The automaker is working on a fix for the condition. Owners will be notified by mail by the middle of January.
