Mack Trucks Australia has issued a voluntary safety recall as a precautionary measure for 2,193 Mack trucks, 97 of which are located in New Zealand.

The recall relates to Mack Granite, Mack Trident, Mack Titan and Mack Super Liner manufactured between 1 January 2009 and 31 December 2016.

“In certain operating conditions, vehicles equipped with a SPL250 driveshaft and specific Meritor rear axles may experience issues with the rear axle yoke. In certain operating conditions, these vehicles may experience rear axle yoke failure, potentially causing the driveshaft to disconnect,” said a spokesperson for parent company Volvo Group.

Volvo Group is contacting vehicle owners to request they visit a Volvo dealership or authorised workshop at their earliest convenience for an inspection, and possible replacement, of the first drive axle input yoke.
