PT Cruisers, Highlanders Recalled

DETROIT -- The Chrysler Group of DaimlerChrysler is recalling nearly every PT cruiser ever built to repair problems that could cause fuel leaks. The only models not included in the recall are those that went into production in July.

The recall involves more than 460,000 units -- every PT Cruiser built for the 2001 and 2002 model years.

In other news, Toyota is recalling more than 154,000 Highlanders because of a fuel-vapor nozzle that could leak during a front-end collision. The recall involves 2001 and 2002 models of the SUV.
