Is Your Car One of the 7 Million Toyota Is Recalling?
Toyota Motor Corporation announced on Wednesday that it will recall more than seven million vehicles to fix a power window issue that the manufacturer says could present a risk for fire.
According to a press release issued by the Japanese automaker, the voluntary recall is to inspect and apply special fluorine grease to the driver’s-side Power Window Master Switch (everyone’s favorite car part) because it may become “notchy” when operated.
“If commercially available lubricants are applied to the switch in an attempt to address the ‘notchy’ or sticky feel, melting of the switch assembly or smoke could occur and lead to a fire under some circumstances,” according to the release.
Toyota says they are not aware of any accidents that have been caused by this malfunction.
Here is a list of all Toyota models being recalled:
- 2007 to 2008 Yaris
- 2007 to 2009 RAV4
