Toyota Faces Global Recall of Approximately 7.5 Million Vehicles

As if Toyota doesn’t have enough problems…

The company, who has been facing rapidly declining sales in China (due to large refusals of Japanese-manufactured goods), has just announced it is recalling 7.5 million vehicles (2.5 million vehicles which are sold in the US).

According to a Los Angeles Times article, the recall is due to power window switches, which have been melting and starting fires in some of the faulty vehicles.
