RECALL: Toyota recalls 6.5 million vehicles worldwide

Toyota is recalling 6.5 million vehicles worldwide over a melting window power switch.

Toyota said modules in the power window master switch may have been lubricated inconsistently during the manufacturing process.

Debris caused by wear from the electrical contact points can accumulate and cause a short circuit. That in turn could cause the switch assembly to overheat and melt, and potentially lead to a fire.


It’s believed more than 300,000 Australian vehicles have been affected by the recall.

Models affected include certain Toyota Aurion, Camry, Corolla, Kluger, RAV4 and Yaris vehicles built between August 2005 and August 2006 and January 2009 and December 2010.
