Fires trigger Toyota SUV recall
(02-17 15:17)

Japan’s Toyota Motor Corp is recalling 13,000 FJ Cruiser sport-utility vehicles, mostly in the Middle East, for fuel tubes that may overheat, melt and set off a gas leak.
The automaker says five fires were reported related to the defect. There have been no reports of injuries or deaths.
The recall announced today covers FJ Cruisers manufactured between October 2012 and January 2014.
Some 10,180 are in the Middle East and 2,500 in Australia; the rest were in Africa and Panama.
Last week, Toyota recalled 1.9 million Prius cars globally for a software problem and 294,000 vehicles _ the RAV4 sport utility, Tacoma pickup and Lexus RX 350 luxury model _ in North and South America for a different software glitch. --AP
