Electrical power loss forces huge Mack recall
Concerned owners are asked to contact their nearest VGA repairing dealer


Volvo Group Australia (VGA) is recalling more than 1,300 Mack trucks up to 12 years old due to potential electrical power-loss issues.

The loss of power in affected vehicles may cause them shut down without warning while in operation.

"Loss of electrical power will cause the truck to shut down completely and may increase the risk of an accident," the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission notes.

"This could result in serious injury to vehicle occupants and other road users."

VGA recently halted Wacol production due to Covid-19

The recall affects: CSM Metro-liner model years 2009-2019; CMM Granite, CMH Trident and CLX Super-liner model years 2008-2019; and CXX Titan model years 2008-2016.

Affected owners will be contacted by email and advised to contact their nearest Volvo Group Australia repairing dealer to arrange for an inspection and repair of the vehicle if required.

Concerned owners can contact their nearest authorised Volvo Group Australia repairing dealer on 07 3718 3500 or email vga.warranty@volvo.com.
