UD Quons face shock absorber issues

 

Nearly 200 Volvo Group Australia (VGA) UD Quons, sold between November 1, 2016 and January 31, 2018 are being recalled.

In affected vehicles, potential failure of the inner wall of the shock absorber may cause fragments to adhere to the piston ring.

"In certain operating conditions the front-rear and rear-rear shock absorbers may bend or break. This could cause interference with the tyre and cause it to burst, which poses a risk of fire," Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) says.

Concerned consumers can also contact their nearest authorised Volvo Group Australia repairing dealer.
