Mack Trucks Recalled over Brake Fault

Another recall of Mack Titan, Granite, Super-Liner, Metro-Liner and Trident trucks has been initiated, this time after a possibly dangerous fault with the brake pedal was identified.

The recall is being overseen by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC).

The ACCC recall notice advising that a potential failure of the split pin, used to secure the brake pedal clevis pin, may cause the clevis pin to come loose, possibly causing the brake pedal to fall to the floor rendering the service brakes inoperable.

What are the hazards?

If the service brakes become inoperable, there is the potential to cause an accident and/or injury to the user or others.

Affected owners should contact their closest authorised Volvo Group Australia (VGA) repairing dealer and book their vehicle in for repair as soon as possible.

The latest recall involving Mack Trucks comes after other recent recalls for the brand over issues such as a faulty warning light and driveshaft issues.
