The Fuso Santek must of course stay in good shape.
Maintenance of the truck is therefore essential.
Mitsubishi prescribes to bring in the truck when it has reached 2500 miles (4000 kilometres).
To change the oil of the engine, the two differentials, the transfer gear and the transmission.
To replace the engine oil filter and the fuel filter.
Also the wheel nuts and the U-bolts are retightened.
This 2500 miles maintenance is offered by Mitsubishi for free except for paying for the oils and parts
