Toyota Recalling 250,000 Vehicles in Russia

Toyota Motor Corporation, which is recalling up to 7.5 million cars globally because of a potential fault with their electric window switches, has said it could recall almost 250,000 affected vehicles in Russia.

A representative of the company's Russian division told Interfax that the cars affected were the Yaris, Corolla, Auris, Camry and RAV4 models produced from October 2006 to December 2008.

"There have been no incidents associated with this situation. At the present time, Toyota is actively preparing to conduct a servicing campaign," the company said.

As part of the recall, the window switches in the affected vehicles will be checked and specially lubricated, according to Toyota. If faults are found, the parts will be replaced at no cost to the owner.

In August, the Japanese automaker recalled more than 89,000 cars in Russia due to faults with the rear suspension, Interfax reported.
