Nearly 200 Mack and Volvo 2013 trucks recalled for steer axle issue

| Thursday, July 21, 2016

Mack Trucks and Volvo Trucks North America are recalling 2013 model year Pinnacle (CXU) and VNL/VNM trucks, respectively. The 193 trucks affected by the recall have an issue with the front steer axles, according to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration documents.

Affected trucks are equipped with Meritor FF967 non-drive front steer axles that may have been incorrectly heat treated. Axles that have not been heat treated correctly may fracture, increasing the risk of a crash, according to NHTSA.

Both Mack and Volvo owners will be notified. Dealers will check axles for specific heat code serial numbers and replace them free of charge if necessary. Recalls are expected to begin July 29.

Mack owners can call 800-866-1177 with recall number SC0404 with any questions. Volvo owners can call 800-528-6586 with recall number RVXX1605.
