Recall for some Mitsubishi Fuso Euro 5 Trucks


The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (ACCC) has just announced a recall for some Mitsubishi Fuso Euro 5 Canter trucks, in addition to the two separate recalls for certain Fuso Euro 5 heavy FP54 trucks that were announced last week.

According to the notice, the Euro 5 Canter recall is due to the possibility of the park brake lever lock being incorrectly tensioned, potentially damaging the park brake cable.

The affected vehicles were sold between March 25, 2011 and October 18, 2012.

Owners of these vehicles should contact their local dealer as free repairs are available.

"The park brake lever lock will be re-tensioned as required and the cable will be inspected for damage and replaced as necessary," the notice says.

Two previous recalls were announced a week ago affecting some Mitsubishi Fuso Euro 5 heavy FP54 models.

 One of these was due to the front brake air hose being too long, potentially resulting in reduced braking efficiency. The other recall was due to the possibility of an over-tightened fuel tank securing strap, potentially causing fuel leakage.

Letters will be sent to the owners of all the affected trucks, and for more information you can contact your local dealer.
