Volvo Recalls Cars to Fix AEB

Order Reprints

March 19, 2020—Volvo is recalling more than 736,000 cars worldwide because the automatic emergency braking system may not work as designed to effectively stop the car, reported The Star Tribune.

A software-hardware incompatibility glitch causes the car to not detect obstacles and stop as designed. It can increase the risk of a crash.

Volvo says forward collision warning systems will work as designed, but there's a very small risk in certain environments and temperatures that the automatic braking system won't function properly, according to the report.
