Volvo Recalls Every Single 2019 And 2020 Model

It's safe to say that Volvo rarely has any recalls, considering that it makes some of the safest, most reliable cars ever. The problems is, every Volvo car is equipped with automatic emergency braking, but recently, the system has failed to detect certain obstacles.

The Volvo XC60 has reportedly failed to apply the brakes when approaching an obstacle, and it happened several times. Volvo is still good with style, safety, and reliability, but seemingly not technology.

Volvo took the XC60 in at their headquarters in Sweden, and fixed the problem. But, they also discovered that every single Volvo produced sine January 21, 2019 could likely suffer the same issue. As a result, about 750,000 Volvos worldwide have been recalled. That includes every model, such as the S60, S90, V60, V90, XC40, XC60, and XC90.

Volvo states that the issue could have developed with a software problem with the AEB sensor in the windshield. This recall prevents a higher risk of accidents. Luckily, the braking system does not have to do with this. Volvo found a way to fix the problem, and Volvo expects vehicles to start coming into dealers May 1. Owners are encouraged to bring them in to have new software installed.

No accidents related to the issue have been reported so far, and we hope there will be no more major recalls from Volvo any time soon.
