Toyota and Pontiac Vibe Vehicle Recall announced for Power Window Malfunction

Vehicle Recall - BSN

(Best Syndication News) - Toyota and Pontiac are recalling around 2,519,424 vehicles because the power windows could malfunction. The internal components of the vehicles might not be properly lubricated, which could cause the power window master switch assemblies to malfunction and overheat. If the switch overheats, it could cause it to melt or even catch on fire.

The recalled vehicles include: Toyota Camry (2007-2009 model years), Toyota Camry HV (2007-2009), Toyota Corolla (2009), Toyota Corolla (2009), Toyota Corolla Matrix (2009), Toyota Highlander (2008), Toyota Highlander Hybrid (2008), Toyota Rav4 (2007-2009), Toyota Scion XB (2008-2009), Toyota Sequoia (2008-2009), Toyota Tundra (2007-2008), Toyota Yaris (2007-2008) and Pontiac Vibe (2009). Certain vehicles within these model years are being recalled.

The companies will be notifying vehicle owners of the recall to get the switch inspected and repaired by applying special grease that slows heat buildup. They also may repair or replace any switch that has been damaged or is defective at no cost to the owner. The auto companies are asking owners not to attempt a repair themselves. If the switch is malfunctioning they should contact a dealer for assistance.

Concerned Toyota vehicle owners may contact Toyota Customer Experience Center toll-free at 1-800-331-4331. Pontiac vehicle owners may contact General Motors’ Pontaic Customer Care toll-free at 1-800-762-2737.
