Different News outlets have been reporting since early that the commercial trucks manufactured by Hino Motors Sales U.S.A., INC. are being recalled.
According to the announcement, a possible axle assembly malfunction is the reason behind the recall. The manufacturer claims that the model 2012 of the following Hino trucks must be taken fixed immediately: ND8J, NE8J, NJ8J and NV8J.
All of the commercial trucks produced from July through September 2011 may have had a rear axle installation issue during the assembly of the vehicle.
The axle and wheel-end retainer on the front were installed incorrectly by the assembly team of the manufacturer. Because of this issue, the vehicle can lose it’s wheel-hub, which will result in the wheels being disconnected from the vehicle, which can result in several accidents.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline is available for all consumers and owners who have any questions regarding the recall. As a Seattle personal injury lawyer, I hope these vehicles will be taken off the road as fast as possible.
