PLANO, Texas (AP) -- Toyota Motor Corp. is recalling 834,000 Toyota Sienna minivans in North America because the sliding doors could open while the vehicle is moving.

The recall involves Sienna minivans from the 2011-2016 model years. A majority of the minivans - 744,000 - were sold in the U.S.

Toyota says the problem happens when the door's opening is impeded and the motor's circuit gets overloaded. If the door is unlatched, it could open while the minivan is driving.

Toyota will repair the doors for free. It is still developing a remedy for the problem.

The company said it will notify owners about the fix by mid-January.
