Toyota Announces Voluntary Recall to Replace Wiper Switches

TORRANCE, CA October 10, 2013 Toyota Motor Sales, USA, Inc. today
announced that it will conduct a non-compliance recall involving
approximately 10,000 Model Year 2013 2014 Camry, Camry Hybrid,
2013MY Avalon, Avalon Hybrid and 2014MY Corolla vehicles to replace
the wiper switch.

During manufacture of the wiper switch assembly in the involved
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.

Owners of the involved vehicles will be notified by first class mail
to return their vehicles to a Toyota dealer for replacement of the
wiper switch.
