Hino Motor Sales Australia — Hino 300 Series
What are the defects?
The parking brake lever may not engage correctly when the lever is pulled up because the teeth in the ratchet mechanism may balance on the tooth tops.
What are the hazards?
The contact may be released by vibration, potentially causing the lever to be released due to inadequate spring force inside the ratchet mechanism and the vehicle may start to move, posing an accident hazard.
What should consumers do?
Owners will be contacted by direct mail. Owners should return their vehicle to an authorised Hino dealer for inspection and repair.
