Toyota Recalls 7.4 Million Cars Worldwide for Fire Risk

By Timothy Bussey on October 24, 2012

Toyota Vehicle RecallToyota recently issued a recall of over 7.5 million of its vehicles in multiple countries, stating that all of them faced a similar problem: defective automatic window controls in the driver’s door that could cause a fire. Although the recall follows serious concerns in previous years over Toyota’s safety record, the company is unconcerned, pointing out that ignoring the problem would be much worse than fixing it.

The recall affects 2.5 million cars in the United States, according to the Detroit Free Press. It covers vehicles made from 2005 to 2010, including Toyota’s popular Camry, Corolla, Yaris, RAV4, Tundra, Matrix, and Sequoia, as well as two Scion models.
