Volvo recalls 25,000 trucks for transmission defect that could cause a crash


Volvo Trucks North America has issued a recall for nearly 25,000 trucks for a defect that could cause debris to fall in the roadway and increase the risk of a a crash.

The recall impacts 24,484 trucks model number 2019 — 2020 VOLVO VAH, VHD, VNL, and VNR.

According to recall documents, the t-bolt clasps on the transmission auxiliary air tank straps may have been over-torqued during manufacture, causing a deformation that could allow the t-bolt to disconnect from the strap, which could in turn allow the tank to drop into the roadway as debris, increasing the risk of a crash.

Truck owners will be notified of the recall August 12. Inspections and repairs will be conducted for free.

If you have questions, you can call Volvo customer service at 800-528-6586 and reference recall number RVXX1904.
