Following the announcement made by Hino Motors, Ltd. in Japan on 21 October 2015, Borneo Motors (Singapore) Pte. Ltd. (BMS) has been notified that the safety-related vehicle recall on Fuel Filter Element may involve select Hino 300 Series model in Singapore.
This is a proactive measure Hino is taking to ensure the continued safety of our Hino customers.
In the involved vehicles, the fuel filter element installed on the engine may crack if the engine is started and stopped frequently. This is due to changes in the fuel pressure and lack of durability of the fuel filter element. If continued to be used, the crack may propagate, causing the element to break and in the worst case scenario, fuel leakage may occur.
Under this recall, BMS will inspect and replace, if necessary, the fuel filter element which is mounted on the engine, at no cost.
At the moment, we are still pending further clarifications on the involved Hino 300 Series model distributed and sold by BMS. We will contact all affected customers upon verification of actual involved vehicles, and schedule appointments to perform the necessary checks and/or replacement.
