Exclamation 2009 Sienna Put Itself In Park

This morning while approaching a stop sign my van made a really loud noise like an airplane landing. After that the van put itself into park and stopped abruptly. I was able to put it back into drive and I drove home slowly (like 1/10 of a mile).

My husband doesn't believe me he thinks I bumped the shifter but there is no way that's what happened.

Has anyone ever heard of anything like this? My husband thinks the van is fine but I'm concerned about driving it out on the road with my kids in it.

Was your van affected by the shift lever solenoid recall? It should not really do what you experienced but...
