Recall notice for Fuso, Dennis Eagle, and Scania trucks

The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (ACCC) has issued product safety recall notices for a variety of Truck models.

Scania trucks in the P, G and R series with front axle air suspension may be susceptible to hazardous control issues. The notice says that the defect concerns "the tightening torque [that] may be too low on the front torque rods of the front axle with air suspension," and that "Low clamping force on the joint may lead to screws shearing and the torque rods coming off."

The chassis number list is: 5310339, 5311510, 5312683, 5312683, 5313111, 5315650, 5315713 & 5315819. If you have a chassis number that matches one of these you should contact your Scania workshop or dealer to have it repaired.

Mitsubishi Fuso Euro 5 Canter trucks manufactured between March 25, 2011, and September 26, 2012, may have a fuel hose that could detach itself from the fuel filter, constituting a fire hazard. Affected owners should receive a letter and will be eligible to get a replacement fuel filter head at no charge.

Finally, a number of Dennis Eagle vehicles may have incorrectly fastened steering bolts, making the vehicle possibly susceptible to steering failure.

Letters are being sent to affected owners, or you can contact your local dealer citing the campaign number FSDE12. The repair is free and is said to take a maximum of one hour to complete.
