The ACCC recall notice advises that Mack vehicles manufactured between 17 January 2020 and 29 September 2020 are affected.

In certain circumstances the driveshaft could fail and separate at the centre bearing, disabling the vehicle.

What are the hazards?

In the event of a driveshaft failure, there is potential for parts to fall onto the road, which may cause an accident hazard to other road users.

Mack Trucks Australia will write to owners of all affected vehicles and repairs will be carried out at Volvo Group Australia repairing dealerships at no charge.

The latest Mack Trucks recall comes after recent issues were also identified with the brake pedal and an ABS warning light in certain models.
