STOCKHOLM: Volvo Cars is recalling around 106,900 cars worldwide over a suspected fault related to the brakes, a Volvo Cars spokesman said today.

The vehicles being recalled are of the 2023 year model of the C40, XC40, S60, V60, XC60, V90 and XC90 models, Reuters reported.

A US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recall report said a driver may experience a hard/stiff brake pedal and potential loss of brake support functions that could lead to a crash. So far, there have been no reports of crashes, injuries or fatalities arising from the flaw.

The brake support functions include brake-by-wire; ABS, ESC, and traction control; Adaptive Cruise Control, Pilot Assist and one-pedal drive; as well as all active safety and city safety functions described in the user manual that involve braking.

Volvo said an over-the-air software update would resolve the issue. The automaker is expected to notify owners from March 15. — Agencies
