Volvo Trucks North America is recalling certain trucks after discovering an issue with the passenger seat.

According to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration documents, Volvo Trucks is recalling certain 2018-24 VN, VNR and VHD trucks.

The passenger side bench seat may be inadequately attached to the floor. Consequently, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard numbers 207, “Seating Systems,” and 210, “Seatbelt Assembly Anchorage.” The attachment points may fail, allowing the bench seat to shift and increasing the risk of injury during a crash.

Dealers will replace the weld nut with two nuts and a washer, free of charge. 

Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed Dec. 15.

For more information, contact Volvo Trucks customer service at 800-528-6586 with recall number RVXX2312.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s number for this recall is 23V-769.
