February 6 2009

We had the new seals put on the van, two weeks ago. We haven't had tremendously cold weather, but I did put the car through the car wash, while temperatures were still above zero. At night, the temperature dropped to about -5 or so. I have turned all the electronics on for all the doors. So far, not even a hint of sticking. However, this is only two weeks into things. Once we have made it through the rest of the winter, we will have a better idea how this 'fix' really holds. So far, so good. I'll keep posting as we progress through the cold weather.

Here's to hoping this fixes the problem. I really enjoy my Sienna.

UPDATE Jan 14 09

We received word back from Toyota the other day. They brought forth the problem and to date, the only solution Toyota has is the changing of the seals around the doors. Again, our dealer is great and they will be footing the bill for this. Our dealership, as well as ourselves, will be watching the results of the seals with anticipation.

Shutting off our electronic options for the doors and using them manually has helped a great deal. I will book my van into the shop for next week or the following week. From there, we will put the new seals to the test.

I'll keep updating as we go. Please, if you haven't contacted Toyota Canada to lodge a complaint, regarding difficulties with your doors, do so now. We will make sure our dealership follows this blog, so they can keep track of the information.

Thank you again to all who are bringing forth a complaint to Toyota Canada.
