Torrance, California – Toyota Motor Sales USA has announced it will launch a safety recall with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) involving approximately 539,500 Corolla and Matrix vehicles sold in the U.S. No notification has yet been made for Canadian vehicles.
On certain 2003 and 2004 model-year Corolla and Matrix vehicles equipped with power windows, the driver and front passenger door glass bolts may loosen and come off, causing the door glass to separate from the window regulator. Vehicles with manual windows are not involved in the campaign.
If this condition has occurred on the vehicle, an abnormal noise may be heard from the driver and/or front passenger door when operating the power windows, in some cases due to the components becoming loose and possibly rattling. Toyota will notify owners beginning in late April. Replacement of the bolts will be done at no charge at Toyota dealers.
