Both Penske Australia and Isuzu are issuing recalls for certain models due to manufacturing defects present in the trucks.

Penske Australia has recalled 17 Dennis Eagle trucks, with all variants within the Elite 2 2021-2022 model being recalled.

Penske says the 17 trucks affected have a manufacturing defect that may cause the front axle brake line hose(s) to become dislodged from the end fitting crimp.

If this happens, Penske warns it may cause a reduction in braking performance or an unintended park brake application.

Owners of impacted vehicles should contact a Dennis Eagle dealer to have parts ordered and necessary works arranged to be carried out free of charge.

Isuzu is also issuing a larger recall as it announces more than 7,000 Isuzu vehicles are impacted by a defect.

The Isuzu D-Max X-Terrain variant from 2020-2021 has been recalled, meaning 7,106 units are impacted by the announcement.

Due to a manufacturing issue, the roller tonneau front cover screws may become loose and fall out, meaning the tonneau front cover may detach from the vehicle while driving.

Isuzu says it will contact affected owners in writing, requesting they make an appointment at their nearest Isuzu dealer for inspection and rectification free of charge.
