Volvo Truck Recall

View Comments

recall notice new Volvo Truck RecallThe government says Volvo Trucks North America is recalling more than 60,000 tractor trailer trucks to address potential steering problems.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says there have been 23 reported crashes and two injuries. The recall affects certain VNL and VNM trucks from the 2001 to 2006 model years.

The government says a ball socket could separate in the steering system, causing the truck to completely lose steering control. The steering loss could result in a crash.

Volvo said dealers will inspect and repair the components in the steering if necessary. The recall is expected to begin in mid August. Owners can contact Volvo Trucks at (800) 528-6586 or (800) 528-6586.
