Toyota announced today it would be recalling more than 2 million cars in North America due to a potential fault in the driver’s side power window switch.

According to a press release, the driver’s side power window was “manufactured with insufficient lubricant grease,” which over time could lead to a short circuit, melting, and even fire.

The Toyota recall affects cars produced between 2007 and 2011, including:

  • 2007 and 2009 Camry and Camry Hybrid
  • 2009-2011 Corolla
  • 2008-2011 Highlander and Highlander Hybrid
  • 2009-2011 Matrix
  • 2006-2011 RAV4
  • 2009-2011 Sequoia
  • 2009-2011 Tundra
  • 2006-2010 Yaris
  • 2009-2011 Scion xB
  • 2009-2010 Scion xD

Owners of the affected models will be contacted by first class mail, and given further instructions. For more information, Toyota owners are encouraged to contact the Toyota Customer Interaction Centre at 1-888-TOYOTA-8 (1-888-869-6828) or Scion Canada’s Customer Interaction Centre at 1-866-9-SCION-1 (1-866-972-4661).
