Volvo’s first recall of the new year affects approximately 27,400 of its 2023 models.
The recall affects the vehicle’s anti-lock brakes, electronic stability control, and traction control systems. Link: More Volvo news
Affected vehicles include the 2023 model year C40 Recharge electric vehicle;
S60 sedan; V60, V60 Cross Country,
and V90 Cross Country Cars; and XC40, XC60, and XC90 SUVs
. The problem is related to faulty diagnostics that can prevent the brake control module from working properly, potentially causing loss of ABS,
electronic stability control, and traction control. This can lead to a hard brake pedal and difficulty coming to a full stop, increasing the risk of an accident.
To solve the problem, the car manufacturer will release software updates over the air for free.
Volvo will begin notifying owners on March 15; those with additional questions during that time can call Volvo at 800-458-1552 (the Volvo number for this recall is R10217),
