Logo - Volvo Trucks North AmericaVolvo Trucks North America (“Volvo Trucks”), a division of the Volvo Group of Gothenburg, Sweden has recalled an estimated 2,287 model year 2020 VNL and VNR vehicles equipped with HD94 Sheppard gear variants marketed, sold and delivered in the United States.

NHTSA Safety Notification 19V756000 reports the steering gear mounting fasteners in the recalled Trucks may be insufficiently tightened, allowing the steering gear to loosen.

The recall is expected to begin November 15, 2019. Owners may contact Volvo Trucks customer service at 1-800-528-6586 during normal business hours, Monday to Friday, Eastern Standard Time (“EST”).
