Iveco Trucks Australia has recalled 785 Daily van and cab chassis models over issues with the parking brake.

According to an Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (ACCC) notice, "it is possible that the eyelet of the secondary cable of the parking brake may break."

"If the cable of the parking brake fails, it will not operate as intended and may cause the vehicle to roll away potentially causing an accident," it says.

Sold nationally between September 1, 2015 and July 25, 2016, Iveco says affected owners should contact their nearest dealership to organise a visual inspection. Should cables need to be replaced, they will.

Until that point, the vehicle maker "urges owners of potentially affected vehicles to ensure the handbrake is applied and automatic vehicles are in the park position and manual vehicles have first gear engaged before exiting the vehicle."

It is the second recall notice issued by Iveco for its Daily range in the past six months. The first affected the fitted airbags.
