Car maker Toyota will recall approximately 490,000 vehicles across the Middle East following the discovery of a defect in power-window switches.
The recall impacts 14 separate models and will involve about 7.43m cars worldwide.
Al Futtaim Motors, Toyota's authorised reseller in the UAE, issued a statement on Wednesday saying that 65,000 vehicles in the Gulf state would be recalled. The impacted models are the Camry, Corolla, RAV 4 and Yaris bought between 2006 and 2010, and Sequoias bought between 2007 and 2010.
Simon Frith, managing director of Al Futtaim Motors, said that each of these cars would require a "45-minute inspection" to determine any defect in their power-window switches.
No accidents have been reported because of the issue, which will see 2.47m vehicles recalled in the US, 1.4m in China, 1.30m in Europe, 460,000 in Japan and 650,000 across the rest of Asia.
