TOYOTA ANNOUCES ITS LARGEST WORLD-WIDE RECALL EVER: 7.4 MILLION VEHICLES

Faulty power window master switch at issue - it can become sticky, and if the wrong kind of lubricant is used, it can be a fire risk. Several fires have been reported.

"The problem does not appear to be a manufacturing defect," says Toyota spokesman Brian Lyons, blaming it on "commercially available lubricants used on switches after the vehicles were sold. Under the recall, a fluorine grease will be applied.

"Toyota cut back on quality control from 2000 to 2010 in order to be the world's largest auto seller," says USA TODAY.
