Volvo Trucks North America is recalling various models of trucks for one of two issues. One recall deals with automatic transmissions, whereas the other recall is an issue with fuses.

Volvo is recalling nearly 25,000 2019-2020 VAH, VHD, VNL and VNR trucks.

Affected trucks have a T-bolt clasp on the transmission air tank straps that may have been overtightened, resulting in potential deformation to the strap where the T-bolt is anchored, according to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration documents.

The T-bolt could disconnect from the strap, allowing the tank to drop to the ground and become a road hazard, increasing the risk of a crash.

Owners will be notified, and dealers will replace the air tank strap for free. Recalls are scheduled to begin on Aug. 12. For questions, call 800-528-6586 with recall number RVXX1904. NHTSA’s recall number is 19V-510.

Volvo is also recalling several hundred 2018-2020 VAH, VHD, VNL and VNR trucks for a separate issue.

In affected trucks, a fuse in the transmission circuit may blow, preventing the transmission from shifting, according to NHTSA.

As with the other recall, owners will notified and repairs will be made by dealers free of charge. The fuse-related recall is slated for Aug. 19. Questions should be directed to the Volvo Trucks customer service at 800-528-6586 with recall number RVXX1903. NHTSA’s recall number is 19V-509.
