The issue has to due with the driver’s side power window switch that may become sticky or ‘notchy’ during operation. The problem is a result of uneven application of grease during switch assembly – if commonly available lubricants are applied, a fire could start under some circumstances.

The recall affects approximately 2.5 million vehicles in the United States.
