Electrical & Lights, October 10, 2012

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Toyota and General Motors are recalling certain models because the power window master switch assembly in some of these vehicles was built using a less precise process for lubricating the internal components of the switch assembly. 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. Dealers will inspect and repair or replace the master window switch as necessary.

2009 Scion xD Reviews

I put 720 miles a week on my 2009 Scion XD. The car has been great up until now. In hot weather, after the car has been driven for about a half hour, while trying to accelerate going uphill, it slips into neutral. It's an automatic transmission. It doesn't matter if it's in cruise control mode, or if I shift it myself from D to 3, or just stepping on the gas. I have to let off the gas until it catches again. Anyone else experience that?
