Toyota is recalling 615,000 Sienna minivans in the US due to a problem with the shift lever that could result in unexpected rollaways.
The recall involves Siennas produced between 2004-2005 and 2007-2009.
The problem centers around the vehicle's gearshift lever which, according to Toyota, can experience damage to the shift lock solenoid. If that occurs, a driver can inadvertently nudge the lever out of the park position without first depressing the brake, allowing the vehicle to roll away if it isn't on a level surface.
Meanwhile, Nissan is recalling about 100,000 Infiniti M luxury sedans in the US because of accelerator sensor problems that could cause stalls.
The sensor used to detect the way the throttle pedal is being depressed can become unstable. That can lead the vehicle to accelerate less aggressively than a motorist might intend and, in some circumstances, it can cause the vehicle to stop or even stall out entirely.
The recall also covers models that include the Nissan Serena, X-Trail, Lafesta and Fuga. The vehicles were produced between 2004- 2013.
