Volvo Group Australia has recalled 6,909 trucks across the Titan, Granite, Super-Liner, Metro-Liner, and Trident over brake pedal issues.

According to an Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (ACCC) notice, the defects could render the trucks’ service brakes inoperable.

"Potential failure of the split pin, used to secure the brake pedal clevis pin, may cause the clevis pin to come loose, possibly causing the brake pedal to fall to the floor rendering the service brakes inoperable," the notice says.

"If the service brakes become inoperable, there is the potential to cause an accident and/or injury to the user or others."

The affected vehicles were sold nationally between 4 January 2008 and 15 January 2016.

VGA says "consumers should contact their closest authorised VGA repairing dealer and book their vehicle in for repair as soon as possible."

The huge recall is the third by the brand since June.

The first affected Granite and Trident models from 2011 to 2014 and the second impacted the 2015 truck range
