Drive a Toyota? Recall notice could be coming

Toyota is recalling more than 2.5 million cars in the United States, to fix a problem with the power window switch that could cause a fire.

It's part of a worldwide recall of nearly 7.5 million vehicles. The automaker says the issue is with the switch on the driver's side, which may feel sticky because of an uneven application of grease during assembly. If a driver applies "commonly available" lubricants in an attempt to fix the problem, a fire could result. Toyota says it isn't aware of any accidents resulting from the window switch issue.

Toyota says it will notify owners of affected vehicles by mail starting later this month. The repair takes about an hour and will be done free of charge.

Vehicles included in the recall are:

  • 2007 to 2008 Yaris
  • 2007 to 2009 Rav4
  • 2007 to 2009 Tundra
  • 2007 to 2009 Camry
  • 2007 to 2009 Camry Hybrid
  • 2008 to 2009 Scion xD
  • 2008 to 2009 Scion xB
  • 2008 to 2009 Sequoia
  • 2008 Highlander
  • 2008 Highlander Hybrid
  • 2009 Corolla
  • 2009 Matrix
