X 1,736,000 is the number of cars from the car manufacturer Volvo Cars, owned by the Chinese Geely, which are the subject of a recall. The reason ? A problem with the automatic emergency braking system. The recall comes after "the introduction of software in January 2019 that turned out to be defective" in nine of its models, AFP spokesman Stefan Elfström told AFP.
model Affected are the S60, V60, V60CC, S90, V90 and V90CC as well as these luxurious SUV XC40, XC60 and XC90, produced between January 2019 and March 2020. "Volvo Cars issued a safety recall after finding that the automatic emergency brake support system did not work properly under certain conditions," said Volvo, who has yet to report any accident. "However, the normal braking system of these cars is not affected," he said.
