Ignition key cylinder concern prompts Mack recall
Owners should not to drive the vehicle until the repair has been made

 

A number of Mack trucks sold this year are subject to a recall due to a potential issue with the ignition key cylinder.

The defect may allow movement of the key from the engine ‘on’ position to engine ‘off’ position while the vehicle is being driven.

"If the key moves to the off position whilst the vehicle is being driven, the engine will cut off, increasing the risk of an accident and injury or death to the vehicle occupants or other road users," the recall notice reads.

"Affected owners will be contacted and advised to make an immediate appointment with their nearest Volvo Group Australia dealership to arrange for a technician to attend and repair the vehicle."


An earlier Mack recall this year was due to electrical power loss


Owners are advised not to drive the vehicle until the repair has been made.

The recall affects the following MY20 vehicles:

  • CSM Metro-liner
  • CMM Granite
  • CMH Trident
  • CLX Super-liner

The VINs of the 53 affected units are available here.
