Recall Summary: Volvo Trucks North America (Volvo) is recalling certain model year 2007-2014 VAH, VHD, VNL, VNM, and VT models.

Remedy: The remedy for this recall campaign is still under development. The recall is expected to begin by August 25, 2013. Volvo's recall number is RVXX1303. Owners may contact Volvo at 1-336-393-2000.
