Volvo Trucks North America (Volvo) is recalling certain model year 2012-2015 VNL and VNM trucks manufactured May 31, 2011, to December 1, 2014.
In the affected trucks, the trailer hand brake handle may not to return to the off position due to being restricted by the cut out in the trim panel.
If the brake handle does return to the off position, the trailer service brakes may drag causing the wheel end to overheat and potentially cause a wheel end fire or tire blowout.
Either condition increases the risk of a crash.
Volvo will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the trim panel slot and make it longer, as necessary, free of charge.
The recall began on October 19, 2015.
Owners may contact Volvo customer service at 1-800-258-6586.
Volvo’s number for this recall is RVXX1504.
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
