Braun Corporation Structure Recall

Vehicle Make / Model:
BRAUN / RAMPVAN
Model Year(s):
2011-2013

Manufacturer: Braun Corporation

Report Receipt Date: JAN 11, 2013

NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 13V012000

NHTSA Action Number: N/A

Component: STRUCTURE

Potential Number of Units Affected: 732

Summary:
Braun is recalling certain model year 2011-2013 Rampvan vehicles manufactured from May 8, 2012, through January 3, 2013. Braun Rampvans are Toyota Sienna minivans that have been modified for special use. The Braun-specific toe pan panel comes in close proximity to the accelerator pedal lever. There could be an interference of the toe panel pan and the accelerator pedal lever.

Consequence:
If there is interference, the pedal may not return to the idle position which may produce unintended acceleration. This could increase the risk of a vehicle crash.

Remedy:
Braun will notify owners, and Braun dealers will modify the toe panel plastic as needed, free of charge. The recall will begin in January 2013. This recall is being conducted by Braun and not by Toyota. Owners may contact Braun customer service center at 1-800-488-0359.
