OTTAWA, Ont. – Transport Canada has issued a recall notice on 489 Volvo VHDs, from model years ranging from 2000 to 2002.

According to the federal government’s equipment watchdogs, on certain Class 8 VHD rigs there is a problem with the telescoping steering shaft. In some driving situations, the shaft could bottom out and side-load the steering gear input shaft if the adjustable steering column is in the lower position. Over time, this condition could damage the steering gear input shaft. To fix the problem, dealers will install a re-designed steering shaft, which will not bottom out during vehicle operation.
