9 Volvo models do not recognize the obstacle and may crash into it (week 16/20)



This week’s recalls:
– Volvo – brake assist
– Jeep – suspension
– VW T6 – child lock
– Bentley – seatbelts


Four recalls for 12 models were issued by 4 carmakers in the 16th week of 2020 through the Rapex system. Bentley, Jeep, Volkswagen, and Volvo announced one recall each.

The software of the Active Safety Domain Master (ASDM) might be incomplete with the model years 2019 and 2020 Volvo S60 – V60 – V60CC – S90 – V90 – V90CC – XC40 – XC60 and XC90. As a result, oncoming obstacles could remain undetected and the Automatic Emergency Brake System (AEB) might not be triggered, increasing the risk of an accident.

We wrote about this large-scale recall for almost three-quarters of a million cars in a separate article. Some other brands also have problems with the brake assist – see the links below.



With the Jeep Wrangler, a poorly welded wishbone bracket may break, while with a Volkswagen T6 the child lock may not activate. With the Bentley Bentayga there is an undersized D-loop of the seat belt pillar in the third row of seats.
