Mitsubishi’s new MQ Triton range has been recalled due to a potential problem with the soft tonneau cover.

The factory-fitted tonneau cover kit may have included rivets that were too short - measuring 14mm instead of the required 17mm.

If the shorter rivets are used to fit the tonneau cover kit, the cover may not be attached securely and can dislodge unexpectedly.

Were this to happen while driving, the cover could create a hazard to other road users or pedestrians.

A total of 605 Tritons are affected by the recall.

Another pickup model to be recalled this week is the Foton Tunland, along with Foton's range of trucks.

The vehicle jack supplied with these models has been found to fall short of Australian standards, owing to an incorrect specification sticker.

Foton said the jack may pose a hazard to the user if it were to be used incorrectly, and is recalling the affected models to update the sticker.

Motorcycle brand Indian is recalling its 2015 and 2016 Chief Classic, Chief Vintage, Chieftain, Roadmaster and Dark Horse models.

The bike-builder has identified a weakness in the rear brake master cylinder piston seal, which could develop a tear.

If this were to occur, rear braking performance could be compromised - resulting in a potential hazard to the rider and other road users.

Mitsubishi, Foton and Indian will attempt to contact affected owners shortly, but any owner wishing to learn more about the latest round of recalls should contact their local dealer.
