Search Driven for vehicles for sale
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is recalling more than 60,000 Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio models around the world.
AP reports that there is an issue with the vehicle's adaptive cruise control systems, which may not disengage even when a driver taps the brake pedal.
Instead the adaptive cruise control function was disabled when a driver pressed the brakes for a sustained period of time.
Alfa Romeo says the issue was discovered when an employee was test driving one of its vehicles, and no crashes or injuries from the problem had been reported so far.
The recall covers Giulia and Stelvio models built from 2017 through to 2019. Owners would be notified next month and the automaker would resolve the issue by updating the brake system software.
Of the models involved in the recall, approximately 19,000 were in the United States, and 1,600 in Canada . More than 40,000 others were located outside North America.
