Recall Summary: Volvo Trucks North America (Volvo) is recalling certain 2016 Volvo VNL and VNM trucks equipped with certain Dana Spicer D-Series and E-Series steer axles. The castellated nut on the steer axles may not be properly torqued, allowing the tie rod to loosen.
Hazard: If the tie rod loosens, it may disconnect from the steering knuckle, causing a complete loss of steering, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy: Volvo will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the torque of the castellated nut and tie rod, tightening it as necessary. If the tie rod stud and knuckle on units cannot be sufficiently torqued, the dealer will replace the knuckle and tie rod end assembly, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin October 16, 2017. Owners may contact Volvo customer service at 1-800-528-6586. Volvo's number for this recall is RVXX1702.
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.

2016-02-19 (Published by NHTSA on 2016-03-16)
Recall Summary: Volvo Trucks North America (Volvo) is recalling certain model year 2016-2017 VNL, VNX, and VNM trucks manufactured from May 11, 2015, through March 8, 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.
Hazard: 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 final remedy is available. Volvo is validating an interim remedy that it expects to make available very shortly while it develops a final remedy. Both remedies are free of charge. Volvo expects to mail all owners notifying them of the defect and the interim remedy by mid-March 2016. A second notice will be sent when the final remedy is available. Owners may contact Volvo customer service at 1-877-800-4945 opt #1. Volvo's recall numbers for this campaign are RVXX1602 and RVXX1603. This recall supersedes safety recall 15V-786.
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.

Recall Summary: Volvo Trucks North America (Volvo) is recalling certain model year 2016 Volvo VNL, VNM, and VNX trucks manufactured May 11, 2015 to November 12, 2015. The affected vehicles have a two-piece steering shaft whose connecting bolt may be insufficiently tightened.
Hazard: As a result, the bolt may loosen and result in the two steering shafts separating causing a complete loss of steering and thereby increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy: Volvo will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and tighten the steering shaft connecting bolt, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on November 30, 2015. Owners may contact Volvo customer service at 1-877-800-4945 option #1. Volvo's number for the recall is RVXX1512.

2015-05-11 (Published by NHTSA on 2015-06-27)
Recall Summary: Volvo Trucks North America (Volvo) is recalling certain model year 2012-2016 VNM trucks manufactured March 21, 2011, to April 30, 2015. Excessive engine crankcase pressures may cause the 90-degree elbow of the vent tube assembly to detach from the crankcase ventilation breather, possibly allowing engine oil to come into contact with hot surfaces.
Hazard: If engine oil comes into contact with a hot surface, there could be an increased risk of a fire.
Remedy: Volvo will notify owners, and dealers will secure the ends of the 90-degree elbow. In addition, the electronic control module (ECM) will be reprogrammed with software that can adjust the engine output under misfire conditions to limit crankcase pressures. These repairs will be performed free of charge. The recall began on June 12, 2015. Owners may contact Volvo customer service at 1-800-528-6586. Volvo's number for this recall is RVXX1502.
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.
