DaimlerChrysler Unit Fuso to Recall 53,571 Vehicles

TOKYO, Sept 5, 2006; Reuters reported that Mitsubishi Fuso Truck & Bus Corp., the Japanese unit of DaimlerChrysler AG, said on Tuesday it would recall 53,571 trucks and buses, spanning five models in Japan, to repair a defect in the brake chamber.

In a filing with Japan's transport ministry, the unlisted truck maker said a loose cap in the chamber could allow water to enter and the spring to rust, which could activate the hand brake.

No accident has been reported from the defect, it said.

The recall covers the Fuso Fighter truck, the Aero Bus and other models manufactured between July 1996 and November 2005. Mitsubishi Fuso, held 85 percent by DaimlerChrysler, declined to disclose the estimated cost of the recall.
