There was a recall for the 2002s also, and for the same problem.

I dunno if it was a widespread 2002 problem or just a certain month for the 2002s, but there was a recall. thumbsup

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.
