Alfa Giulia Recall, Malaysian Owners How?

Alfa Romeo customers globally will soon be receiving a letter inviting them to bring their cars to the authorised Alfa workshops as part of a reminder/recall campaign. Now, Malaysians who have bought their Alfa’s from a AP car importer will not be getting this letter and they will not be able to participate in this recall as the AP car importer does not have the Alfa workshop to handle this or any recall.

Some 60,000 Alfa vehicles worldwide are involved. FCA says a software error caused the problem, and the vehicles could even accelerate if the brakes are tapped.

Adaptive cruise control is an advanced safety feature that keeps moving vehicles at a set distance from the cars in front of them. The problem is an example of how complex computerized safety devices can sometimes develop glitches.

This is Giulia and Stelvio SUV’s produced between December 2016 and May 2018. The problem lies in the speed regulator. Internal tests have shown that the system may not turn off quickly enough after pressing the brake pedal. It could even react inappropriately under certain driving conditions. While waiting for the recall update at the workshop, Alfa Romeo advises the customers concerned not to use cruise control for a software update.
