Toyota recalls more than 7 million vehicles


MADISON (WKOW) -- Toyota recalls more than 7 million vehicles in the United States, Japan and Europe.

The vehicles are being recalled because of a faulty power-window switch. The recall announced Wednesday morning, affects more than a dozen models produced from 2005 through 2010.

The power window switch didn't have grease applied evenly during production, causing friction in the switch and sometimes smoke.

No crashes or injuries have been reported because of the problem, but more than 200 problems were reported in the United States.

Recalled in North America are the Yaris, Corolla, Matrix, Camry, RAV4, Highlander, Tundra, Sequoia and Scion models xB and xD. This is about 2.5 million vehicles.
