IVECO Trucks Australia Ltd—Dual Control ACCO Vehicles

Identifying features

Recall Campaign A80: Dual control ACCO vehicles produced between January 2009 and March 2014.

What are the defects?

Bearing surface on some steering mitre gears may fail prematurely. The steering mitre gear supplier has now enhanced the bearing design for greater durability.

What are the hazards?

A failure of the bearing surfaces, should it occur, may be (but is not always) signalled by noises emanating from the steering column area when rotating the steering wheel and can lead to an increase in steering effort by the driver or, in very limited cases, inhibit steering wheel movement. If the defect occurs, the vehicle may pose an accident hazard to the driver and other road users.

What should consumers do?

Top priority vehicle owners will be contacted without delay by the closest authorised IVECO dealer and by IVECO Trucks Australia Ltd. A letter will also be sent via registered mail to all owners of affected vehicles.
