Toyota and GM recall 662,000 vehicles in the U.S.

Toyota tm said Wednesday it had received reports of 143 cases in which the bolts at the bottom of the power window assembly became loose, caused the window to rattle or led to the window breaking.

Toyota spokesman Joe Tetherow said there had been one minor accident and 15 injuries reported.

The GM recall involves 2003-2004 model year Vibe vehicles with power windows.

The Toyota recall involves 2003-2004 model year Corolla and Matrix vehicles with power windows.

Vehicles with manual windows are not part of the recalls. The recall affects only vehicles sold in the United States.

Toyota will notify owners of the recall in late April. Dealers will replace the driver and front passenger door glass bolts at no charge to owners.
