The Associated Press is reporting that Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is recalling 60,000 Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio models built from the 2017 to 2019 model year for issues relating to the cruise control.
According to the article, FCA has reported a software error that can cause the vehicles to continue to use the Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) setting or even accelerate even if the driver taps the brake pedal. FCA is apparently unaware of any incidents or injuries due to the issue. Apparently, owners who experience the issue can still turn of the ACC by stepping on the brakes for a longer period of time.
FCA will be notifying owners of the affected vehicles starting next month. Owners will be able to take their vehicle to certified Alfa Romeo dealer for a software upgrade, upon receiving the recall notice. To see if your vehicle has any outstanding recalls, you can visit the NHTSA recall site.
