Toyota Motor Corp. is calling back 154,593 ’01- and ’02-model Highlander SUVs to fix a fuel-vapor nozzle. Toyota, which discovered the problem during routine crash tests, will rotate the clamps that hold the nozzle about 90 degrees to avoid a leak during a front-end collision. Kia Motors Corp. also will recall one of its models, the ’98 Sephia, because of problems with the hazard and turning lights. Kia says it will replace the hazard switch in 25,000 cars.
