Volvo Truck Recall Reaches 100 Percent Completion

The DOT announced nearly all of the 16,000 heavy trucks subject to recall have been accounted for

The DOT has announced the last of the 16,000 heavy trucks voluntarily recalled this year by Volvo Trucks North America have been identified and repaired, according to a report. The trucks were recalled for a serious steering defect on February 17.

“Over the last nine months, our USDOT team and Volvo Trucks have been laser-focused on protecting the motoring public by ensuring that every one of these recalled heavy trucks was identified and removed from our roadways until they were repaired,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx.  “This extraordinary effort, covering such a large number of vehicles, now with a confirmed 100 percent achievement of the safety recall, averted the risk of injury or death to not only the truck drivers, but also to everyone sharing the road.”

Volvo contacted truck owners directly, as well as posted announcements on social media and issued multiple press releases.
