Toyota launches massive recall for window switch defect
In impacted vehicles, the power window master switch may have been manufactured with insufficient lubricant grease.
As of Thursday, the VIN range of possible affected vehicles was still subject to confirmation, and Transport Canada will be notified as soon as the number becomes available, the company said.
That said, the automaker has reported the issue impacts 6.5 million vehicles worldwide, 2 million of which are in the U.S.
Affected models include:
- 2007 and 2009 Toyota Camry and Toyota Camry Hybrid
- 2009-2011 Toyota Corolla
- 2009-2011 Toyota Highlander and Toyota Highlander Hybrid
- 2009-2011 Toyota Matrix
- 2006-2007 and 2009-2011 Toyota RAV4
- 2009-2011 Toyota Sequoia
- 2009-2011 Toyota Tundra
- 2006-2007 and 2009-2011 Toyota Yaris
- 2006 and 2009-2011 Scion xB
- 2009-2011 Scion xD
Owners of the involved vehicles will be notified by mail. When owners bring their vehicles in, Toyota dealers will inspect the switch and apply heat-resistant grease. Then, if the switch is not operating normally, the switch circuit board will be replaced.
