Manufacturer: Mitsubishi Fuso Truck of America, Inc.

Mitsubishi Fuso Truck of America, Inc. (MFTA) is recalling certain model year 2013-2014 FEC52, FEC72, FEC92, and FGB72 trucks. The transmission oil cooler hoses may leak transmission fluid (ATF) due to being secured with hose clamps that have an insufficient clamping force.

Leaking transmission fluid may 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, 2013. Owners may contact Mitsubishi Fuso at 1-856-467-4500. Mitsubishi's recall number is C1006410.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153)
