I just checked and the 2002's have the same recall... I never thought Id say this but now Im thankful I crashed my '02 Celica Gt and got an 04 Celica GTS... I hope that 04's dont have the same problem later!
it wasn't a fire issue really. It was just the pressure regulator so you don't spill the gas on yourself after you pump. THe thing was breaking off and floating around in the fuel tank. But they say fire just in case someone gets caught on fire.
unless this isn't the old fuel tank thing you're talking about.
