Volvo recalls 13,000 trucks

Volvo, the Swedish truck maker, said Thursday it had recalled 13,000 of its heavy goods vehicles due to faulty cables which affected the steering system.

All the trucks are the FH16 model, built between 1993-2002.

Volvo Trucks spokesman Claes Claeson said there had been 10 incidents where faulty cables made it “impossible to drive” the trucks.
