In the end, a power window switch is a pretty minor recall.
North American manufacturers would just sell you new switches until you got one that worked for a while.
Such a minor thing, why is it news? My Mazda was recalled because the wiper motors were blowing in them... I don't think that ever made the news.
It makes the news because it's Toyota.
