Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Recall

Dates of Manufacture: Truck - between December 1989 and December 1990, Bus - between June 1990 and February 1991

Defect: Hubs are thinner than usual and could rupture.

Background: 65 incidents starting September 1990. Most vehicles recalled have been earlier recalled under different campaigns. Asahi Shimbun on 16th April reported that Mitsubishi knew about this problem, that was caused by a computer programming error, as early as 1990, but decided to keep quiet about this that time.
