A new recall from Volvo Trucks North America (VTNA) has been issued for more than 11,000 VNL and VNX tractors for a defect involving the sleeper bunk window, while subsidiary Mack is recalling a small number of trucks for a problem with conspicuity reflectors, according to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) documents.

Volvo’s recall affects approximately 11,089 model year 2018-2020 VNL and VNX trucks configured as 740 and 760 sleeper models. In these trucks, the sleeper bunk window could detach and fall from the truck.

The company says the adhesive bond between the glass and window hinge may prematurely fail, causing the window to fall off.

Volvo is notifying affected truck owners, and dealers are replacing the window hinge for free. Owners can contact Volvo customer service at 1-800-528-6586 with recall number RVXX1902. NHTSA’s recall number is 19V-208.

Mack’s recall affects approximately 43 model year 2020 Anthem and Pinnacle trucks. The conspicuity reflectors on the back of the cab may be blocked by the exhaust system, which is a violation of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard.

Mack is notifying affected truck owners, and dealers are installing additional reflectors on the cab for free. Owners can contact Mack customer service at 1-800-866-1177 with recall number SC0418. NHTSA’s recall number is 19V-209.
