A rare feat: 100 percent of recalled trucks repaired
DETROIT (AP) — All 16,000 Volvo heavy trucks that were recalled earlier this year for a dangerous steering problem have been repaired.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says it's a rare 100 percent completion rate for a recall. Most only get to 70 percent completion 18 months after they start.
The truck recall began in February after Volvo determined that a steering shaft problem in some 2016 and 2017 trucks could cause drivers to suddenly lose the ability to steer.
