Alfa Recalls Adaptive Cruise Control

This recall involves 2017-2019 Alfa Romeo Giulia and 2018-2019 Stelvio vehicles. The adaptive cruise control (ACC) may not allow cancellation of the ACC in specific driving conditions.

 In certain circumstances while ACC is active and the traction control detects a specific wheel slip, it is possible for a positive torque request to be locked by the brake system module (BSM) which may result in unexpected acceleration. 

If the driver does not shift to neutral or apply firm, sustained brake pedal application to deactivate the ACC, this condition can cause a vehicle crash without prior warning.
