UD Trucks Australia issuing voluntary safety recall

In UD1 MinutesBy NZ Trucking magazineNovember 21, 2018

UD Trucks Australia is issuing a voluntary safety recall as a precautionary measure for 186 UD trucks in Australia and New Zealand. The voluntary safety recall applies to UD pPNLT Quon RSS-AIR trucks produced between 1 November 2016 and 31 January 2018. In certain operating conditions, the front-rear and rear-rear shock absorbers may bend or break. In certain conditions, this could cause interference with the tyre and cause it to burst, which may cause a risk of fire.

UD Trucks is contacting owners to request they visit a Volvo Group dealership and arrange a time for their vehicle to be inspected at their earliest convenience.

UD Trucks New Zealand has advised that only three trucks are affected by the voluntary safety recall of Quon trucks, and all customers have been contacted directly to arrange replacements. They also stated that with the exception of pre-production units, the production of the new Quon models for New Zealand did not commence until February 2018.
