Volvo issues recall notice for FH13 and FH16 models


Volvo Group Australia (VGA) is recalling 534 affected units of its FH13 and FH16 models due to a manufacturing issue.

VGA says the V-stay connection screws in the rear wheel suspension may become loose, causing the rear axle housing to move sideways.

“If this occurs, there is a risk of chafing between the tyres and the chassis parts which could lead to a loss of vehicle performance,” the notice said.

“A loss of vehicle performance could increase the risk of an accident causing injury or death to vehicle occupants and/or other road users.”

The impacted units are in the year range 2021-22.

Owners of affected vehicles can contact their nearest authorised Volvo Group Australia repairing dealer to schedule an appointment to have the work carried out free of charge.
