Mack recalls 2015 truck range

Trailer warning issues force VGA to recall most models sold in 2015


Volvo Group Australia (VGA) has recalled 699 Mack Titan, Granite, Super-Liner, Metro-Liner, and Trident models over trailer ABS alert issues.

According to an Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (ACCC) notice, the affected trucks, which were manufactured between February 9, 2015 and December 17, 2015, are equipped with trailer ABS malfunction lights that do not illuminate.

“If a malfunction were to occur with the trailer ABS the driver would not be alerted to the issue,” the ACCC notice says, “posing a potential accident hazard.”

Sold nationally by VGA through authorised dealerships, the affected Mack trucks require an update to their instrument cluster software.

VGA says consumers should contact an authorised repairing dealer.

The recall marks the second in two months from Mack, the first affected Granite and Trident models made between 2011 and 2014.
