Was there a Fuso Canter recall in Malaysia?
In August 2018, last year, there was a recall of more than 14,000 Fuso Canter trucks sold in Australia after a possible airbag issue was identified.
The recall is being overseen by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) and involves Fuso Canters sold in Australia between the 1st of March 2011 and the 30th of November 2017. This recall notice advises that the wiring harness of the SRS electronic control unit could become severed if the vehicle is in a severe collision.
What are the hazards?
If the SRS electronic control unit is severed in a collision it may stop the airbag deployment signals from being transferred to the modules.
In the worst case scenario the airbag may not deploy, posing a greater risk of injury to the vehicle occupant in an accident.
