Toyota Recalls Noah and Voxy minivans.

TOKYO: Toyota Motor Corp. said Wednesday it will recall 628,239 minivans in Japan due to an installation flaw that could lead to cracks in the fuel tank.

Subject to the recall are the Noah and Voxy models manufactured between Nov. 7, 2001 and May 31, 2007, the Japanese automaker said in a filing to the transport ministry.

The problem involves the area around a bolt on the rear, left hand side of the fuel tank, Toyota said. High-stress driving conditions, such as on extremely curvy roads, could lead to cracks, which may then result in leaks in some cases, it said.

Sixteen such defects have been reported. None has led to accident or injury, Toyota said.

The company has not released how much the recall will cost, spokeswoman Kayo Doi said.
