UD Quon and Western Star recalls
A 2017 UD Quon


A recall notice for 331 UD Quons built between 2017 and 2019 has been issued.

According to the notice, the spare wheel assembly attachment bolts may loosen and cause excessive vibration, which may cause the bolts to break.

"If the bolts break and the spare wheel assembly separates from the vehicle, the spare wheel could drop to the ground, posing an accident or injury risk to the vehicle occupants or other road users," it says.

"Affected owners will be contacted by direct mail and advised to contact their nearest Volvo Group Australia repairing dealer to arrange an inspection and repair of the vehicle if required."

Concerned owners can contact their nearest authorised Volvo Group Australia repairing dealer
on 07 3718 3500 or email vga.warranty@volvo.com

Meanwhile, 67 model-year 2018 Western Stars, manufactured between March 23 and September 27 of that year, are in the framed for an exhaust gasket issue that risks emissions standards.

"The exhaust gasket at the turbo/exhaust pipe join and at the exhaust pipe/aftertreatment device join may not have been installed. An audible and visual exhaust leak may be detectable from the affected areas.

"Affected consumers can contact their authorised Western Star Truck dealer and quote campaign number FL822 to book their vehicle in for repair, free of charge."
