Yaris recall in China

I don't think this effects us here in NA or EU...

Toyota, the world's biggest carmaker, is recalling almost 690,000 cars made in China because of faulty electrical window switches.

The recall affects the company's Camry, Corolla, Vios and Yaris models made at two joint ventures in China - Guangzhou Auto and Tianjin FAW.

This represents Toyota's biggest recall of cars in China.

The company said that no injuries or accidents had been reported as a result of the faulty electrics.

'Short-term impact'

"The size of the recall is big, but won't be a major problem for Toyota given the nature of the defect. Still, there will be some impact in the short term," said Huang Zherui, analyst at CSM worldwide.

The recall includes 384,736 Camrys made with Guangzhou Auto between 15 May 2006 and 31 December 2008.

A total of 22,767 Yaris compact cars made last year with the same partner are also being recalled.

The affected cars also included 245,288 Corollas and 35,523 Vios made in 2008 with FAW.

Last month, rival Japanese carmaker Honda announced it was recalling 440,000 vehicles in the US because of an airbag defect.

True but for some reason this made CBC news, and all the comments on the story are people hating on Toyota and just singing praises for MADE IN NORTH AMERICA cars.

I think Honda's faulty airbags are a MUCH bigger deal than faulty window switches.

I'd much rather my window didn't work than my air bag, but that's just me.
