Power Window Defect Prompts Corolla, Matrix and Vibe Recalls

April 09, 2008

DETROIT --- Toyota Motor Corp. and General Motors Corp. said they are recalling more than 662,000 vehicles sold in the United States because of defects in power windows, Reuters reported.

Toyota will recall 539,500 Corolla and Matrix vehicles for the 2003 and 2004 model years. GM will recall 122,598 Pontiac Vibe hatchbacks, which share the same platform with the Matrix and are built by GM in a joint venture with Toyota.

On vehicles equipped with power windows, the driver and front passenger glass bolts may loosen and cause the door glass to separate from the window regulator. Vehicles equipped with manual windows have no such problem and are not subject to the recall.
