Another Toyota recall for UK, 1.2 million in total for Europe
Remember back in 2012 when Toyota had to issue a recall for its power windows, well it’s back, as there are another 6.5 million vehicles affected. Three years ago Toyota recalled 7.5 million, and so that is 14 million in total just for a simple problem.
The problem is with the power switch, which could short-circuit and overheat, which could then catch fire all because the right amount of greese was not applied to the part.
The numbers mentioned above were worldwide, and we know that 1.2 million of them will be recalled in Europe, although no figures for the UK have been disclosed at this time.
Model involved in the recall are the:
- 2006-2010 Yaris
- 2006-2011 RAV4
- 2007 and 2009 Camry and Camry Hybrid
- 2008-2011 Highlander and Highlander Hybrid
- 2009-2010 Scion xD
