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.
