Volvo Trucks North America Recalling More Than 6,000 Trucks Because of Faulty Software

Justin Ide/Bloomberg News

Volvo Trucks North America is recalling 6,127 of its model year 2013-2017 VNL and VNM trucks and model year 2017 VNX trucks with faulty software to prevent possible contamination of the brake system.

The vehicles have incorrect software for controlling the electronic air dryer and that may result in oil and water contaminating the brake system, VTNA said.

The recall is expected to begin Feb. 17, and VTNA will notify owners, and dealers will reprogram the vehicle control module and replace the air dryer filter, free of charge, the truck maker said.

Owners may contact Volvo customer service at 800-528-6586. Volvo's number for this recall is RVXX1608.

VTNA is a unit of Sweden-based Volvo Group.
