We’re still waiting on the official recall notice to come in, though we can confirm certain UD Trucks Quon are being recalled.

The team at Volvo Group Australia (VGA) sent us notification a short time ago that the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) would be overseeing the action.

According to VGA, the recall is a voluntary safety recall as a precautionary measure for 186 UD Trucks in Australia and New Zealand.

The voluntary safety recall applies to UD pPNLT Quon RSS-AIR Trucks produced between the 1st of November 2016 and the 31st of January 2018.

In certain operating conditions, the front-rear and rear-rear shock absorbers may bend or break.

In certain conditions, this could cause interference with the tyre and cause it to burst, which may cause a risk of fire.

A VGA spokesperson saying that “safety is at the core of our business, which is why we are taking this action”.

VGA are contacting owners to request they visit a Volvo Group Australia dealership and arrange a time for their vehicle to be inspected at their earliest convenience.

The Quon hasn’t been trouble free – the model has previously been recalled over electrical, spare tyre and brake issues.
