Toyota To Recall 6.5 Million Vehicles Globally Over Faulty Switch

Written By:

Japanese carmaker Toyota would recall around 6.5 million vehicles globally, over faulty power window switches. The recall will include the Corolla and Camry models as well.

The models that are affected have been produced between January 2005 and December 2010.

The issue is due to inconsistent lubrication of the power window switches, which could short circuit due to debris formed during usage. This could make the switch to overheat, leading to the vehicle catching fire.

Toyota said it was unaware of accidents or crashes due to this issue.

Out of the total recall units, 2.7 million cars are from North America, 1.2 million from Europe and around 600,000 are from Japan itself.

The Toyota Matrix, RAV4, Highlander, Tundra, Sequoia and Scion xB are also part of the recall lineup.

Toyota had earlier recalled around 140,000 units of the Crown and Crown Majesta models in Japan, over faulty hood release switches, which might cause the hood to open unexpectedly.

Another famous recall made by Toyota was for the faulty airbags made by Takata, which could potentially kill the occupants by spraying shrapnel, in the case of an accident.
