Eldorado National-Kansas (ENK) is recalling certain model year 2011-2013 Amerivan Toyota Sienna vans. The fuel filler neck may contact the left rear shock absorber.

If the shock makes contact with the fuel filler neck, it could damage the neck allowing it to leak gasoline vapors and result in a fire or explosion causing personal injury.

The owners of all affected Amerivan Toyota Sienna vans will be notified directly by ENK, and dealers will relocate the shock absorbers and add a spacer, free of charge.
