Alfa Romeo has recalled the Stelvio and Giulia, over concerns about the adaptive cruise control system.

According to the company, some cars fitted with adaptive cruise control mightn't allow the driver to cancel in "very specific driving conditions".

In some circumstances, the car could unexpectedly accelerate with adaptive cruise activated. If the driver doesn't apply the brakes, there's an increased risk of accident or injury, both for the driver and other road users.

This is a global recall – more than 60,000 cars are included worldwide – but there are no reported crashes or injuries.

A total of 1647 cars are included in the campaign locally – a VIN list is attached here.

Alfa will contact owners of the affected vehicles and advise them to organise a free software fix with their nearest dealership.
