Recall Alert: Toyota Recalls 7.43 Million Vehicles Globally

Posted Wednesday, October 10, 2012 --- 7:15 a.m.

TOKYO (AP) -- Toyota Motor Corp. is recalling 7.43 million vehicles worldwide because of a faulty power-window switch.

The recall affects more than a dozen models produced from 2005 through 2010. Toyota says the power-window switch on the driver's side didn't have grease applied evenly during production, causing friction in the switch and sometimes smoke.

No crashes or injuries have been reported related to the problem. But more than 200 problems have been reported in U.S., and a fewer number of problems were reported elsewhere, including 39 cases in Japan.

In North America, Toyota is recalling the Yaris, Corolla, Matrix, Camry, RAV4, Highlander, Tundra, Sequoia and Scion models xB and xD.

Other models also are being recalled in Japan and Europe.
