Hino Motors Sales U.S.A. is recalling 13,700 model year 2020-2021 NV8J, NJ8J, NE8J, NJ8A, NV8A, NE8A, NE8G, NJ8C, NE8C and NV8G trucks.
The ground cable that connects the negative battery terminal to the frame may be too short and may break as a result.
If the ground cable breaks, the engine cannot be re-started to move the vehicle to a safe area, increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
Hino will notify owners, and dealers will install an extension bracket to the negative battery terminal and inspect the ground cable terminal for damage -- replacing the cable if damage is found -- free of charge.
Owners will be notified of the safety risk with an interim letter Mid-June 2020. A second letter will be sent once the remedy is available.
Owners may contact Hino customer service at (248) 699-9390. Hino's number for this recall is AAHT0.
