Toyota has announced it's recalling more than seven million vehicles all around the world.

The recall is blamed on a power window problem that could start a fire. Around 2.5 million Toyota vehicles are affected in the United States. 

The vehicles involved include:
• 2007 to 2008 Yaris (approx. 110,300)
• 2007 to 2009 RAV4 (approx. 336,400)
• 2007 to 2009 Tundra (approx. 337,100)
• 2007 to 2009 Camry (approx. 938,100)
• 2007 to 2009 Camry Hybrid (approx. 116,800)
• 2008 to 2009 Scion xD (approx. 34,400)
• 2008 to 2009 Scion xA (approx. 77,500)
• 2008 to 2009 Sequoia (approx. 38,500)
• 2008 Highlander (approx. 135,400)
• 2008 Highlander Hybrid (approx. 23,200)
• 2009 Corolla (approx. 270,900)
• 2009 Matrix (approx. 53,800)

The problem is the power window switch could catch fire.  Toyota automakers said the driver's side power window switch may feel sticky when you are using it.  This is the largest automaker recall since Ford recalled about 8-million vehicles back in 1996. If you think your car may be affected by the recall, contact Toyota directly, or a Toyota dealership. 

Letters will be sent out to everyone who is affected in the next few weeks. You can call Gulf Coast Customer Service at 1(800)331-4331 for any other questions.
