Volvo Trucks and Mack Trucks recall tractors for defective fifth wheels

Volvo Trucks and Mack Trucks each issued a recall for a problem with the fifth wheel on certain tractors.

The recalls affect 69 model year 2019 Volvo VNL and VNR and nine 2019 Mack Anthem trucks equipped with Jost fifth wheel couplings. These fifth wheels may have a slider bracket that is too narrow, possibly allowing a trailer to separate from the tractor.

Volvo and Mack began notifying owners on Sept. 14. Dealers will inspect the fifth wheel slider bracket and replace it if necessary.

Owners of affected trucks can contact Volvo customer service at 1-800-528-6586 with recall number RVXX1801, and Mack owners can contact customer service at 1-888-866-1177 with recall number SC0411.

NHTSA’s recall numbers are 18V-542 for Volvo, and 18V-543 for Mack.
