WASHINGTON (AP) — Toyota Motor Corp. is recalling 600,000 Sienna minivans sold in the United States to address potential corrosion in the spare tire carrier cable.

Toyota says the recall affects the 1998-2010 model year Siennas that have been operated in cold-climate areas.

The automaker says corrosion from road salt could cause the carrier cable to fail. The spare tire could become separated from the vehicle and cause a road hazard for other vehicles.
