Toyota recalls 7.43m vehicles10/10/2012 - 08:55:12
Toyota is recalling 7.43 million vehicles globally, including in the US, Japan and Europe, over a faulty power-window switch that may stop working in more than a dozen models produced between 2005 and 2010.
The Japanese car giant said today that the switch on the driver’s side did not have grease applied evenly during production, causing friction in the switch and sometimes smoke.
No crashes or injuries have been reported in connection with the problem.
In North America, the models being recalled 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, and in Europe the Yaris, Corolla, Auris, Camry and Rav-4.
China, Australia, other Asian nations and the Middle East are also affected.
