March 3, 2016 – Transport Canada reports Mitsubishi has issued a recall on certain Fuso vehicles outfitted with the optional accessory cold weather PCV heater kit.

The company noted the pipe heater wiring may chafe on a metal clamp. This could result in the PCV pipe heater wiring to interact with the clamp, the company explained, which could lead to an electrical short circuit, increasing the risk of a fire.

To correct the issue, Mitsubishi said dealers will replace the PCV pipe heater with an improved component.

The company added that about 685 units are affected. These include model numbers FEC52, FEC72, FEC92, and FGB72, all from the year 2012.
