Multiple Daimler recalls impact Fuso, Freightliner trucks

Three different recalls is causing headaches for plenty of truck owners.

In a spree of recalls, Daimler has announced that three of its popular truck models require repair work following manufacturing issues.

In the first and most major recalls impacting just under 8,000 of a total 9,066 models, the Fuso Canter from 2019 to 2022 has been recalled over a software defect.

The recall says that the brake pad wear warning light equipped with the electric brake pad may appear prematurely on the dash, meaning the break pad wear indicators won’t work as intended.

The second recall relates to the Freightliner Cascadia between 2019 to 2022, with certain vehicles potentially developing a fracture to the mounting bracket at the base of the seat.

Daimler says this could cause the seat base to shift within the seat suspension frame, increasing the risk of injury for the driver in the case of an accident.

Finally, 146 Fuso Fighter and Shogun models from 2022 have been recalled due to a manufacturing issue with the cab mounting brackets.

Daimler says these brackets haven’t been tightened to the designated torque, meaning the cab lock down mechanism could become loose and make it insecure.

With all three recalls, Daimler is offering impacted vehicle owners to perform the work carried out as soon as possible, free of charge to rectify the issues.
