Mitsubishi Fuso Recalls 7,800 Trucks

SWEDESBORO, NJ — Mitsubishi Fuso Truck of America is recalling 7,819 trucks, model year 2012-2014 FEC52, FEC72, FEC92 and FGB72 because of transmission issues.

In the affected vehicles, the transmission may not have been cleaned sufficiently during manufacturing, allowing debris to contaminate the automatic transmission fluid. Contaminated ATF may cause the transmission to become inoperative resulting in engine stalling, increasing the risk of a crash.

Mitsubishi Fuso will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the transmission, flush the system twice and refill it with new ATF or replace the transmission assembly as necessary, free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin April 7.

Owners may contact Mitsubishi Fuso at 1-856-467-4500 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236.
