Washington — Toyota Motor Corp. said Thursday it will recall 10,000 new cars to replace a potentially faulty wiper switch.
The Japanese automaker said the recall includes 2013–14 Camry, Camry Hybrid, 2013 Avalon, Avalon Hybrid and 2014 Corolla cars to replace the wiper switch.
During production of the wiper switch assembly in the vehicles, certain contacts on the switch terminal could have been manufactured incorrectly. This could lead to a potential short if the wiper is moved from off to the mist setting. A short can cause the windshield wipers to become inoperative.
