Body, Interior & Misc., October 6, 2008

RepairPal Expert Overview:

On some Scion models sold at Southeast Toyota, the optional grill installed may allow the hood to open while driving if the vehicle is driven with the hood unlatched. The plastic radiator grill garnish could release the secondary hood release. If the hood opens while the vehicle is in motion, it could strike the roof or windshield and obstruct the driver's view, increasing the risk of a crash. Southeast Toyota will inspect the sports grill and install additional clips to ensure the radiator grill garnish is secured. The recall began October 6, 2008.

Irregularities in this lubrication process may cause the power window master switch assemblies to malfunction and overheat. This could result in the switch melting or possibly catching fire.
