7,200 petrol Hijets recalled

DAIHATSU is recalling 7,200 petrol-engined Hijet vans - only the second safety recall the importer has had to make in the UK. Vehicle monitoring has indicated that in extreme circumstances, it is possible for the terminals in the block connectors of the wiring sub-harness to become corroded.

The contract is composed of eight Iveco Ford Daily vans used by crews working on repairs and a 59.12 Daily with a flatbed body and beavertail, used for moving plant machinery, including diggers and sand skimmers. The vehicles, which are replacements, join a 400-strong fleet which ranges from large commercial trucks to cars.

The vehicles include special racking to carry specialist equipment and are also equipped with public address systems to broadcast messages to the public.
