Toyota has recalled 6.5 million vehicles worldwide due to power-window switches that do not have enough grease and could catch fire. The problematic switches according to Toyota, will be either fixed or replaced in less than an hour. The affected cars were produced between 2005 and 2010, and include Toyota’s Yaris, Corolla, Matrix, Camry, RAV4, Highlander, Tundra, and Sequoia models, among others. Scion xB and Scion xD models are also included in the recall. The automaker said it had received 11 reports of burnt door trim, and one report from the U.S. of a customer who suffered a burn on their hand. About 2.7 million of the cars were sold in North America, 1.2 million in Europe, and 600,000 in Japan, according to Toyota.
