Toyota Recalls 7.4 Million Vehicles For Faulty Power-Window Switch
Toyota says it is recalling 7.43 million vehicles globally, including the U.S., Japan and Europe, for a faulty power-window switch that may stop working in more than a dozen models, produced from 2005 through 2010.
Toyota Motor Corp. said Wednesday the power-window switch on the driver’s side didn’t have grease applied evenly during production, causing friction in the switch and sometimes smoke. No crashes or injuries have been reported related to the problem.
Recalled in North America are the Yaris, Corolla, Matrix, Camry, RAV4, Highlander, Tundra, Sequoia and Scion models xB and xD. Recalled in Japan are the Vitz, Belta, Ractis, Ist, Auris and Corolla Lumimon. The Yaris, Corolla, Auris, Camry and Rav-4 are recalled in Europe. China, Australia, other Asian nations and the Middle East are also affected
