Toyota Motor Corp is recalling 7.43 million vehicles worldwide over possible power window glitches, the carmaker said Wednesday.
The number includes 2.47 million units in the United States, 1.4 million in China, 1.39 million Europe and 460,000 in Japan, Toyota said.
"The driver's side power window master switch may experience a 'notchy' or sticky feel during operation," Toyota's U.S. unit said in a statement.
"If commercially available lubricants are applied to the switch in an attempt to address the 'notchy' or sticky feel, melting of the switch assembly or smoke could occur and lead to a fire under some circumstances," the carmaker said.
Recalled models in the U.S. include Camry, Tundra, RAV4, Corolla and Highlander.
No injuries or vehicle crashes have been reported related to the problem, said Shino Yamada, a Toyota spokeswoman at the company's headquarters in Tokyo.
There have been 39 reported cases of this defect in Japan, according to a government report.
