If the vehicle pulls left, it may cross into another lane unexpectedly, increasing the risk of crash.


NHTSA Campaign Number: 19V044

Manufacturer Hino Motors Sales U.S.A., Inc.


Potential Number of Units Affected 7,231



Hino Motors Sales U.S.A., Inc. (Hino) is recalling certain 2007-2019 NJ8J (258ALP) vehicles. These vehicles do not have dust shields on the front brake assemblies. During wet conditions, uneven water saturation on the front brake assemblies may result in the vehicle pulling to the left during hard braking.



Hino will notify owners, and dealers will install new brake drums with dust shields, free of charge. The recall began March 19, 2019. Owners may contact Hino customer service at 1-248-699-9390. Hino’s number for this recall is AACL0.



Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.




DATE: 2-11-2019


SUBJECT VEHICLES: Certain 2007 through 2019 model year Hino Conventional NJ8J (258ALP) vehicles equipped with a J08 engine that were assembled at the Williamstown, WV assembly plant, or the Ontario California, U.S.A. assembly plant.



Due to the absence of dust shields on the front brake assemblies and differences in airflow around the right and left brake assemblies, in very wet conditions, the recalled vehicle population may exhibit a brake pull to the left during hard braking events.  Investigation shows that the right brake assembly is becoming saturated with water while the left brake assembly stays dry during such conditions. A newly designed brake drum, which accommodates dust shields for brake assemblies, will be installed on all the subject vehicles.



As required by Federal law (49 Code of Federal Regulations §577.13), dealerships are not to deliver any new vehicles in their inventory that are involved in a Safety Recall unless the vehicle has been remedied. Refer to the appropriate Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) list to determine vehicle eligibility.

Note: Refer to the appropriate Vehicle Identification Number in the warranty system to determine vehicle eligibility.

Conventional on-road Medium Duty Truck

Brake Dust Shield Installation HNTSA 19V044 Hino AACL0

This notice applies to your vehicle: VIN:


Dear Hino Truck Owner:

This notice is being sent to you in accordance with the requirements of the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act. Hino has decided that a defect, which relates to motor vehicle safety, exists in certain 2007 2019 conventional trucks. You received this notice because our records, which are based primarily on state registration and title data, indicate that you are the current owner.


What is the Condition?

Due to the absence of dust shields on the front brake assemblies and differences in air flow around the right and left brake assemblies, in very wet conditions, the recalled vehicle population may exhibit a brake pull to the left during hard braking events. Investigation shows that the right brake assembly is becoming saturated with water while the left brake assembly stays dry during such conditions. The brake pull to the left during hard braking events during very wet conditions may result in unexpected vehicle travel to the left in such situations. This could result in increased risk of a crash.


What will Hino do? 

A newly designed brake drum which accommodates dust shields for brake assemblies will be installed on your vehicle. Please make an appointment with your authorized Hino Dealer to have the remedial work performed. This repair will be performed at NO COST to you.


What should you do?

You do not need an owner letter to have this recall completed; however, to assist the  dealer  in  confirming  vehicle eligibility, we request that you present this notice at the time of your service appointment.

If you would like  to update  your  vehicle  ownership  or contact  information, you may do  so by  contacting Hino Warranty at warranty@hino.com or by telephone 1 248-699-9390. You will need your full 17-digit Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to update the new ownership or contact information.


What if you have other questions?

  • Your local Hino dealer will be more than happy to answer any of your questions and set up an appointment to perform the repair.
  • You can locate a Hino dealer in your area by going online and visiting hino.com
  • If you require further assistance, you may contact Hino Warranty  at 1-248-699-9390, Monday through  Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time.

If you believe that the dealer or Hino has failed or is unable to  remedy  the  defect  within  a reasonable  time,  you  may  submit a complaint to the Administrator, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 1200 New Jersey Avenue S.E., Washington, D.C. 20590, or call the toll free Vehicle Safety Hot Line at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov. ·

If you are a vehicle lessor, Federal law requires that any vehicle lessor receiving this recall notice must forward a copy of this notice to the lessee within ten days.
