Volvo AB - Some Volvo Trucks Taken Off Road - DJCP
Thursday, 24 Mar 2016 01:35am EDT 

Volvo AB:The U.S. Department of Transportation ordered thousands of Volvo AB heavy-duty trucks off the road Wednesday, after the company announced a recall last week because of potential defects that could cause drivers to lose control of their vehicles. - DJCP.The order marks the first time regulators have pulled a particular manufacturer's trucks from service, regulators say, and will likely force some fleet operators to scramble to find new big rigs to avoid stranding their customers' cargo.Earlier this month, Volvo told federal regulators that it may have installed 19 defective steering shafts among the roughly 15,835 trucks sold in the U.S. between May 11 and March 8.The defective units were manufactured without roll pins, parts that ensure a shaft's two parts hold together.If a shaft comes apart, it could cause the driver to lose control of the truck. Volvo later identified a second steering shaft defect affecting the same pool of nearly 16,000 trucks.John Mies, a Volvo spokesman, said Wednesday that 13,761 trucks have already been taken out of service and 6,300 of those had been repaired, out of the total of 18,638 sold in the U.S. and Canada.The repair used an interim fix to secure the two parts of the steering shaft. On Wednesday, the company sent instructions to drivers, via their dashboard display software, instructing them to contact Volvo.  Full Article
