    Default Toyota to recall 7.4 million cars

    Toyota is voluntarily recalling more than seven million vehicles worldwide, including some Yaris, Corolla and Camry models, over faulty window switches.

    It affects 1.39 million cars in Europe - 138,000 in the UK - 2.47 million in the US and 1.4 million in China.

    It is the biggest single recall since Ford called back eight million vehicles in 1996.

    Toyota said there had been no reports of accidents, injuries or deaths as a result of the window problem.

    Toyota is also recalling 459,000 vehicles in Japan, 650,000 in Australia and Asia, as well as hundreds of thousands from across the Middle East, and from within Canada and its other, smaller markets around the world.

    The number of vehicles being recalled is roughly the same as its sales for the whole of its last financial year.

    I wonder if it's like the Trailblazer/GMT360 window switches that GM recalled because the switch can catch fire?

    I've seen a few different models of vehicle catch fire because of dried up soda or latte residue in the window/door lock switches.
