Vehicles Affected: Approximately 10,000 model-year 2013-14 Toyota Avalon, Avalon Hybrid, Camry, Camry Hybrid and 2014 Corolla sedans.

The Problem: Certain components of the wiper switch assembly could have been improperly manufactured. A potential short circuit could occur if the wiper is moved from the Off position to the Mist position. This could cause the wipers to break, increasing the risk of a crash.   

The Fix: Dealers will replace the affected wiper switches for free.

What Owners Should Do: Toyota has not provided an owner notification schedule, but will notify owners via mail. Customers can visit www.toyota.com/recall or call 800-331-4331 for more information.
