Toyota says it is recalling 7.43 million vehicles globally, including the U.S., Japan and Europe, for a faulty power-window switch that may stop working in more than a dozen models, produced from 2005 through 2010.

Toyota said that the switch on the driver's side didn't have grease applied evenly during production, causing friction and sometimes smoke. No crashes or injuries have been reported related to the problem.

In total European market, this operation involves about 1.4 million units, while in the United States and in China the number reaches 2.47 million cars and 1.4 million, respectively.
