Alfa Romeo Recalls 60,000 Vehicles

DETROIT (AP) — Fiat Chrysler is warning owners of more than 60,000 Alfa Romeo cars and SUVs worldwide not to use the adaptive cruise control because it might not stop working even when a driver taps the brakes.

The recall covers certain Giulia cars and Stelvio SUV models from 2017 through 2019.

The company 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.
