Recalls Issued for Mitsubishi Fuso and Terex Trucks
September 30, 2013
Mitsubishi Fuso Truck of America is recalling 600 2013-2014 FEC52, FEC72, FEC92, and FGB72 trucks.
A National Highway Traffic Safety Administration bulletin says the transmission oil cooler hoses may leak transmission fluid due to being secured with hose clamps that have an insufficient clamping force.
This could lead to leaking transmission fluid which could prevent the transmission from shifting, rendering the transmission inoperative, increasing the risk of a crash.
MFTA will notify owners, and dealers will replace the hose clamps, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on October 21. Owners may contact Mitsubishi Fuso at 1-856-467-4500. The recall number is C1006410.
Terex South Dakota is recalling 6,797 model year 1997-2009 XT55 and XT60 Aerial Devices mounted on utility trucks.
Cracks may develop around the lower boom hinge pin boss at the turntable, which could lead to unexpected motion of the boom and could cause the aerial platform to fall, resulting in personal injury.
Terex will notify owners, and dealers will provide a preventative welding reinforcement, free of charge. It has not yet provided a notification schedule. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says owners are to continue to follow the inspection and repair process as detailed in NHTSA recalls 10V028 and 11V542. Owners may contact Terex at 1-605-882-4000. Terex's number for this campaign is SN608.
