Toyota Motor Corp and General Motors Corp are recalling more than 662,000 vehicles sold in the United States due to defects in power windows. Toyota will recall 539,500 Corolla and Matrix vehicles for the 2003 and 2004 model years. GM will recall 122,598 Pontiac Vibe hatchbacks, which share the same platform with Toyota’s Matrix and are built by GM in a joint venture with the Japanese automaker. On vehicles equipped with power windows, the driver and front passenger glass bolts may loosen and cause the door glass to separate from the window regulator, according to Toyota. Vehicles equipped with manual windows are not subject to the recall. Owners should contact their local Toyota dealer for inspection and repairs. Replacement of the driver and front passenger door glass bolts will be done at no charge. The vehicles share a common platform and are built in a GM-Toyota joint venture in Fremont, California. GM says it received 107 complaints of glass breaking and 11 reports of minor injuries. According to GM and NHSTA there have been no crashes reported. The GM recall involves 2003-2004 model year Vibe vehicles with power windows.
