Toyota recalls 100,000 Tundra trucks

NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) — Federal regulators announced Tuesday the recall of 110,000 Toyota pickup trucks in 20 U.S. states and the District of Columbia.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said that road salts can cause “excessive corrosion” of the Toyota Tundra’s frame, which holds a spare tire mounted underneath the vehicle. NHTSA said dislodged spare tires can cause hazards for other vehicles on the road.

The corrosion can also damage the rear brake lines and lead to brake system failures, the NHTSA said.

 The agency urged Tundra owners to remove the spare tires even before taking the vehicles to a dealers to be remedied.

The recall involves Tundras from model years 2000 through 2003 that are registered in states where chemical de-icers, such as road salts, are used to treat roadways during the winter.

The states included in the recall are: Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and the District of Columbia.

NHTSA said Toyota will contact owners of affected vehicles and ask that they bring the vehicles to a local dealer to be inspected and repaired.

Toyota will either replace the damaged portion of the vehicle’s frame, or apply a rust-resistant compound to the affected area, depending upon how bad the corrosion is. Toyota will also contact Tundra owners outside of the United States, according to NHTSA.

 It was the second major safety problem for Toyota in as many months. In October, the Japanese automaker issued a safety warning for 3.8 million Lexus and Toyota cars because of potentially deadly floor mats.

MAN SE CEO Samuelsson Resigns

MAN SE CEO Samuelsson

MAN SE CEO Samuelsson

 

MAN SE’s chief executive, Hakan Samuelsson, unexpectedly resigned his post at the helm of Europe’s third-largest truck maker.

The resignation, which MAN said came at Mr. Samuelsson’s request and would take effect immediately, comes amid a bribery probe at the German truck maker. It also follows a rocky relationship with the chairman of both MAN and Volkswagen AG, Ferdinand Piëch, who thwarted Mr. Samuelsson’s bid to take over rival truck maker Scania AB of Sweden in 2006.

Mr. Samuelsson’s departure could open the door further to Mr. Piëch’s long-held wish to merge the two truck makers under Volkswagen’s umbrella. Volkswagen declined to comment.

MAN shares surged 4.9% in reaction to the resignation news, though closed just 0.3% higher at €59.70 ($88.72). Since MAN’s failed bid for Scania, Volkwagen has taken a controlling stake in the Swedish truck maker and increased its stake in MAN to 30%, setting the stage for a possible three-way tie-up.

The departure of Mr. Samuelsson, a Swede and nine-year veteran at MAN, follows a particularly turbulent period at the company, the No. 3 European truck maker by sales after Daimler AG of Germany and AB Volvo of Sweden.

In May, German prosecutors launched an investigation into bribery allegations at Munich-based MAN. The probe, which extends back to 2002, includes at least 100 suspects who were believed to be involved in bribes paid in Germany and abroad to secure sales of trucks and buses, prosecutors said.

A spokesman for the Munich prosecutors heading the probe, though, said they were surprised by the announcement of Mr. Samuelsson’s departure and didn’t believe it was connected with their investigation. Mr. Samuelsson, MAN’s chief executive since 2005, isn’t a suspect in the prosecutors’ probe, the spokesman said.

MAN hired an auditing firm to help conduct its own investigation shortly after the probe was opened. One management board member at MAN’s truck-making unit has since resigned and another was put on leave last month.

Mr. Samuelsson couldn’t be reached for comment and MAN declined to make him available. In a written statement, though, the company said that “he hopes that his decision will help the MAN Group to quickly devote all of its attention to its core business and its further development,” adding that Mr. Samuelsson was “convinced there should be a fresh start at the highest level of the company.”

Georg Pachta-Reyhofen, head of the company’s MAN Diesel SE unit, will act as interim CEO, MAN said.

In 2006, Mr. Samuelsson launched a hostile bid for his former employer, Scania, believing Volkswagen, which then owned a 30% stake in the Swedish truck maker, would support the deal. But prodded by Mr. Piëch, the German car maker and Scania’s other large investors ultimately blocked the sale.

Volkswagen has since taken a controlling stake in Scania and become MAN’s largest shareholder by increasing its stake to 30%, paving the way for Mr. Piëch to become MAN’s chairman. Mr. Piëch, who pulled off a similar coup with Volkswagen’s nearly completed takeover of Porsche SE, has long been open about his desire merge the two truck makers under Volkswagen’s umbrella instead.

Vectra, Russian co Kamaz in heavy-duty truck JV – To produce heavy-duty trucks in India

The joint venture is seeking to initially source around 30% of the components locally, and will include gearboxes and at a later stage, engines.

Akhat Urmanov, deputy director-general of sales and servicing at Kamaz as quoted by the news source, said: “We plan to sell around 1,000 of these trucks this fiscal. We will price them between the existing Indian players and Volvo.”

Tatra Truck
