Power Window Switch Concerns Prompt Massive Toyota Recall

Toyota Motor Corp. is recalling 7.43 million vehicles in the U.S., Japan,  Europe and elsewhere around the world for a faulty power-window switch.  The recall, announced Wednesday, affects more than a dozen models produced  from 2005 through 2010. 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, according to Toyota.

No crashes or injuries have been reported related to the problem. But more  than 200 problems were reported in U.S., and a fewer number of problems were  reported elsewhere, including 39 cases in Japan, Toyota spokesman Joichi  Tachikawa said.

Recalled in North America are the Yaris, Corolla, Matrix, Camry, RAV4,  Highlander, Tundra, Sequoia and Scion models xB and xD, spanning 2.47 million  vehicles.
