NHTSA

16V097

SUMMARY:

Volvo Trucks North America (Volvo) is recalling certain model year 2016-2017 VNL, VNX, and VNM trucks manufactured from May 11, 2015, through April 18, 2016.

The trucks may have been manufactured without a roll pin on the steering shafts. If the roll pin is missing, the lower steering shaft may disconnect from the junction block. Also, the bolt connecting the upper steering shaft to the lower steering shaft may not have been properly tightened. Either condition can lead to separation of the steering shaft.

 

CONSEQUENCE:

Separation of the steering shaft will result in complete loss of steering which may lead to a vehicle crash.

 

REMEDY:

Volvo is strongly recommending that the affected vehicles not be driven until the interim remedy is applied.

An interim notice was sent to Volvo owners on March 16, 2016, and an interim repair is available now.

A second notice was mailed on May 13, 2016.

The final remedy is now available.

Both remedies are free of charge.

Owners may contact Volvo customer service at 1-877-800-4945 opt #1.

Volvo’s recall numbers for this campaign are RVXX1602 and RVXX1603.

  1. It’s good to know that Volvo has issued this recall to all affected owners and make sure that it is addressed as soon as possible to prevent any possible accidents. Losing control of your steering is dangerous and will certainly lead to a disaster if the part is not repaired or fixed immediately. If I were one of the people affected by this Volvo recall, I would make sure to visit my dealership right away. Thanks.
