Mack Trucks Australia has announced it has taken steps to issue a voluntary safety recall as a precautionary measure for a total of 2,193 Mack Trucks in Australia.
According to Mack Trucks spokesperson, Kate McFerron, in certain operating conditions, vehicles equipped with a SPL250 driveshaft and specific Meritor rear axles may experience issues with the rear axle yolk. In certain operating conditions, these vehicles may experience rear axle yolk failure, potentially causing the driveshaft to disconnect.
“Safety is at the core of our business, which is why we have taken this action. We are contacting owners to request they visit a Volvo Group Australia dealership at their earliest convenience, in order for the first drive axle input yoke to be inspected, and if required, to be replaced,” said Ms McFerron in a statement issued this week.
Th\e recall relates to Mack Granite, Mack Trident, Mack Titan and Mack Super-Liner manufactured between 1 January 2009 and 31 December 2016.
Customers are encouraged to contact their local dealer or authorised workshop to arrange a convenient time for their vehicle to be inspected.
