Toyota Camry and RAV4 being investigated by NHTSA for door fires

NHTSA safety regulators have opened a preliminary investigation into complaints of driver side door fires in 2007 model year Toyota Camry and RAV4 models. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said an estimated 830,000 vehicles may be affected by the potential recall.

The NHTSA said that 6 consumers have complained about the door fires.

“Based on the available information, it appears the fires are originating from the power window master switch located on the driver’s side door,” the NHTSA report said.

“Toyota received the Preliminary Evaluation Opening Resume for the 2007 RAV4 and Camry on February 7,” Toyota said in a statement. “However, we have not received an information request from the NHTSA. Toyota will fully cooperate with the agency in its efforts to investigate these allegations,” the company said in an email statement.”
