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 4,332 model year 2019-2021 Fuso FEC7T, FECZT and FEC9T Trucks marketed, sold and delivered in the United States.

Recall Category: Service Brakes, Hydraulic – Vacuum Pump failure due to heat exposure

NHTSA Safety Notification 20V645000 reports the Brake Booster Vacuum Pump Assembly may be affected by heat radiating off the Exhaust Manifold during normal engine operation. This heat can cause the diaphragm in the Pump to crack, resulting in loss of vacuum in the Vacuum Pump.

According to the NHTSA, if loss of vacuum occurs, the vehicle’s Power Brake Assist may become inoperable, increasing the risk of a motor vehicle collision (“MVC”) or other impact event with consequential serious injuries and/or life-changing outcomes for the primary vehicle’s driver, passengers and/or the secondary vehicle’s drivers, passengers and/or pedestrians nearby.

==> If you have a medical emergency, please contact 9-1-1, your closest hospital or emergency center equipped to properly treat lacerations, concussions, bone fractures, amputation, central nervous system (“CNS”) damage and/or internal injuries.

Please note that under 49 United States Code § 30112(a), it is illegal for anyone, including a manufacturer, distributor, dealer or retailer to sell an item of equipment or vehicle that fails to comply with all applicable Federal motor vehicle safety standards.
