Toyota announced that it will be recalling 6.5 million vehicle globally to fix a defect in the power window switch in numerous models. The recall effects the Yaris/Vitz subcompact, Corolla, Camry, Matrix, RAV4, Highlander, Tundra, Sequoia and Scion xB, that were produced between January 2005 and December 2010. Of the 6.5 million total, about 2.7 million are in North America, 1.2 million in Europe, and 600,000 in Japan, the automaker said.
Toyota said modules in the power window master switch may have been lubricated inconsistently during the manufacturing process. As a result, debris caused by wear from the electrical contact points can accumulate and cause a short circuit. That in turn could cause the switch assembly to overheat and melt, and potentially lead to a fire, it said.
