Volvo Cars has issued a massive recall involving over 106,000 cars worldwide, and that include some units here in Malaysia.
Volvo Car Malaysia (VCM) has stated that a total of 545 units have been affected by this potential issue that may affect the car’s brake control module, specifically the software.
Only 2023 model-year units affected
All of the 545 cars affected in Malaysia are for certain model-year 2023 units of seven different Volvo car models – XC40, C40, XC60, S60, V60, XC90, and S90. According to VCM, “No other models or variants are affected”.
“Some customers with affected cars may experience a stiff brake pedal and the loss of electronic braking support functions, although rest assured that braking capabilities will remain via the brake pedal. The driver will be warned of the issue occurring via the driver information module (DIM),” added VCM in its press statement.
