Additional information:

Among the nine (9) recalls the NHTSA has announced this September comes news of the following:

Logo - Mitsubishi Fuso Truck of AmericaMitsubishi Fuso Truck of America, Inc. (“MFTA”), a member of the Daimler Truck Group of Daimler AG and a Logan Township, New Jersey establishment, has recalled an estimated 2,015 model year Mitsubishi Fuso FEC52, FEC72, FEC92 and FGB7 branded Trucks marketed, sold and delivered in the United States.

The rocker arms in the recalled vehicles may have been manufactured incorrectly and may break as a result.

The recliner mechanisms in the recalled vehicles may be missing the third pawl required for seat back strength, resulting in a loose seat back. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (“FMVSS”) numbers 202, “Head Restraints” and 207, “Seating Systems.”

According to the NHTSA, if the rocker arms break the engine may stall, increasing the risk of a crash.

MFTA will notify registered owners and dealers will replace the rocker arms. While disassembled, the engine will be inspected and any damage will be remedied. These repairs will be performed free of charge. The recall is expected to begin October 11, 2019. Owners may contact MFTA customer service at 1-877-711-0707.
