Toyota recalling 2004 Sienna minivans


WASHINGTON (AP) _ Toyota Motor Co. is recalling 34,437 Sienna minivans because the fuel tank is prone to damage and could cause a fire, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said Friday.

The recall covers minivans from the 2004 model year that were sold to the public starting in January.

According to NHTSA, a part of the Sienna's fuel tank was damaged during severe front-end crash tests conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. A fire could result if fuel leaked from the damaged tank.

It was not immediately known whether any injuries were caused by the defect. Toyota officials weren't available for comment early Friday.

Dealers will replace the fuel tank for free. Owners are scheduled to be notified of the recall later this month.
