More than 15,000 Volvo trucks are being recalled because of a potential brake problem.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Volvo is recalling some 2020-21 VAH, VHD, VNL and VNR trucks.

The NHTSA recall says the die-cast pedal plate may break at one of its attachment points, possibly resulting in the brake pedal dislodging. If a brake dislodges, it may become inoperable, increasing the risk of a crash, according to the recall.

Volvo will notify owners of affected trucks. Dealers will inspect and replace the pedal plates as needed. Recalls will begin on Oct. 30.

If you have questions you can call Volvo Trucks customer service at 800-458-1552 with recall number RVXX2004. The NHTSA’s number for this recall is 20V-536.
