Toyota has announced that that it will recall about 6.5
million cars to fix a defect
in the power window switch. The company
revealed that there is a potentially insufficient amount of grease applied to
the master switches during production and this can cause a short circuit and
when this happens, the switch assembly could overheat, melt, produce smoke and lead
to fire outbreak.  
Toyota also disclosed that affected owners would receive
a mail notification and Toyota dealers will inspect the switch and apply heat-resistant
grease; the internal circuit board could even be replaced if the switch is malfunctioning.

Vehicles involved in the US are certain models of the
Toyota Camry, Corolla, Highlander, Matrix, RAV4, Sequoia, Tundra and Yaris, the
Scion xB and xD, built between 2006 and 2011. In Australia, models include the
Aurion, Camry, Corolla, Kluger, RAV4 and Yaris produced between August 2005 and
August 2006 and January 2009 and December 2010.
