Among the four (4) recalls the NHTSA has announced this March comes news of the following:

Hino Motor Sales USA, Inc. (“Hino”) has recalled an estimated 5,667 model year 2018-2019 NE8J, NJ8J and NV8J Trucks. The terminal bolts that secure the main fuse terminals within the fuse block may not have been properly tightened, possibly resulting in electrical arcing and overheating, or an engine shutdown.

What to do next? Hino will notify registered owners, and dealers will tighten any loose terminal bolts and replace any damaged electrical harness, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in March 2018. Owners may contact Hino customer service at 1-248-699-9390. Hino’s number for this recall is M0320.
