Toyota recalls 630,000 Minivans for faulty fuel tanks and engines in Japan

Toyota, Japan on Wednesday notified the transport ministry that it is recalling over 630,000 minivans due to faulty fuel tanks and engines. The recall affects the leading Japanese automaker’s Noah and Voxy minivans. According to Toyota, fuel tanks were not installed properly for 628,239 units produced between November 2001 and May 2007. Cracks may appear and oil may leak as a result, Toyota said.

Toyota also said that the engines of 2,623 units manufactured between June and November last year may stall when being driven at high speeds due to a flaw in their computer programs.
