So, Volvo trucks are in some trouble. They have to take care of a certain window defect that is likely to injure or hurt a pedestrian. Transportation authorities assure the public that it will be a major recall for a specific new model
You don’t think it’s real, huh? What if I told you the NHTSA is involved? That’s right, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) had documents shown about Volvo Trucks North America was recalling specific 2020 VNL vehicles with this problem with the window hardware.
The documents read that 8,456 vehicles have been severely gone through the ringer by way of this recall. This is regarding a recall that will begin on November 27th, 2020. Furthermore, Volvo Trucks North America are notifying truck owners and dealers that they’ll recall the window hinge. It will absolutely be free-of-charge.
The documents are saying “window hinge and mounting hardware are insufficient to hold the window in place if the truck is driven with the sleeper bunk windows open … If a window detaches from the vehicle, it may strike another vehicle or pedestrian, increasing the risk of a crash or injury.”
That’s crazy, isn’t it? 8,456 Volvo Trucks are super defective!
Finally, owners of Trucks will be able to access Volvo Truck North America’s hotline at 1-800-458-1552 and reference recall number RVXX2005.
This isn’t the first time Volvo Trucks has done this.
As it turns out, just last month, Volvo had to recall all sorts of models because of broken brake pedals. Guess how many they had to recall…
15,000! Or actually 15,156. This is an unfortunate situation as the VAH, VNL, VHD and VNR models were all affected in the worst ways.
