Recall Summary: Volvo Trucks North America (Volvo) is recalling certain model year 2016 VN trucks manufactured January 6, 2015, to January 15, 2015, equipped with certain Eaton Fuller FR-Series 10-speed manual transmissions. In the affected vehicles, when the transmission shift lever is moved from reverse to neutral, the reverse gear may stay engaged. When the transmission shift lever is moved from reverse to a forward gear position, the transmission may mechanically lock because both the reverse gear and forward gear are simultaneously engaged.
Hazard: Even though the transmission has been shifted out of reverse into neutral, the vehicle may unexpectedly move backwards, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy: The remedy for this recall is still under development. The recall is expected to begin December 15, 2015. Owners may contact Volvo customer service at 1-800-528-6586, or Eaton customer service at 1-800-826-4357. Volvo's number for this recall is RVXX1510.
Additional Info: 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.
