Isuzu Giga vehicles sold in Australia between 2010 and 2019 are being recalled with faulty front under-run protection device (FUPD) reinforcement brackets.

The issue may cause the FUPD to collapse if involved in a frontal collision.

1,205 units have been affected, and do not comply with the Australian design rule 'Vehicle Standard (ADR 84/00 - Front Underrun Impact Protection) 2009'.

"If the device collapses when impacted with a vehicle, there is a greater chance of the vehicle being pulled under the truck, which can pose a greater accident hazard for road users and cause serious injury or fatality to vehicle occupants," the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) says.

Owners are instructed to contact their nearest Isuzu truck dealership to arrange for vehicles to have stiffener brackets fitted.
