Alfa Romeo recommends not using Adaptive Cruise Control on Giulia and Stelvio models until the software is modified. Worldwide, the problem concerns 60,000 vehicles produced between 2017-2019.

Due to an error in the adaptive cruise control software, the vehicle can maintain speed or even accelerate when the driver taps the brakes. The function can only be switched off by intensive and long-term braking. Alfa Romeo is unaware of any accidents or injuries caused by this problem discovered during a test drive by its employee. Some of the cars are still at the dealerships and have not been sold yet. The owners of the others will be contacted by the dealer in the following weeks.

Alfa Romeo has not been seen often in the list of recalls announced through the EU Rapex alert system in recent years. But this trend is clearly changing nowadays. We recently wrote about two Stelvio recalls in a short time and also Giulia had already one recall this year – see the links below.
