Volvo Has Found a Serious Problem: Which Models Fall Under the Recall

Volvo will recall more than 120,000 cars of the 2019 and 2020 model years.

Before producing new vehicles and releasing them to the market, automakers conduct a number of tests, thereby checking their performance and absence of hidden defects. However, there are situations when malfunctions can be detected during the operation of the car. In this case, if the problem becomes widespread, manufacturers are forced to declare a large-scale recall.

This time, the global recall is being carried out by Volvo, as problems with the safety system were identified in the brand's cars, namely in the operation of the Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) system. In particular, due to a software error, drivers may be left without automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection, which can lead to quite disastrous consequences.

More than 120,000 vehicles of the 2019 and 2020 model years, which were released from November 2018 to March 2020, were affected by the recall. These include: the XC40, XC60 and XC90 SUVs; the S60 and S90 sedans; the V60, V60 Cross Country, V90 and V90 Cross Country station wagons.

Volvo's representatives will contact all car owners affected by the recall starting in May this year. The company will update the incompatible software for free.
