“The recall, according to NHTSA, states that windows may become detached from the impacted vehicles, which would increase the risk of an accident.
“Volvo is recalling certain 2020 VNL vehicles. The window hinge and mounting hardware are insufficient to hold the window in place if the truck is driven with the sleeper bunk windows open,” a portion of NHTSA’s release reads.
This recall impacts more than 8,000 vehicle owners and is expected to begin on November 27, 2020, according to NHTSA.
Volvo stated the company has notified all affected vehicle owners of its latest safety recall. Auto glass companies working on the recalled models can assure their customers that their window hinges will be replaced, at no cost to the customer. Shop owners can advise their impacted Volvo vehicle owners to contact the manufacturer’s customer service center if they have more questions at 1-800-458-1552 or NHTSA’s vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236.”
