Volvo Trucks Recalls More Than 127,700 Trucks

May 25, 2009

WASHINGTON, D.C. --- Volvo Trucks is recalling more than 127,700 MY 2001-2008 VHD, VNL, VNM and VT trucks because of a problem with the windshield wiper motor. 

A seal may fail, allowing water and contaminants to seep into the windshield wiper motor. Over time, this condition could cause a short circuit to occur, posing a fire risk, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website reported. 

Volvo will soon notify owners of precautions they can take until repairs can be made, NHTSA said. 

Truck owners can contact Volvo Trucks at (800) 528-6586.
