New Safety Recall Advanced Communication – 68A

FCA US LLC (FCA US) has announced a safety recall on certain 2017 through 2020 Model Year (GA) Alfa Romeo® Giulia QV and 2018 through 2020 Model Year (GU) Alfa Romeo® Stelvio QV vehicles.

 

REASON FOR THIS SAFETY RECALL

Some of the above vehicles equipped with carbon ceramic matrix brakes may have an independent electronic parking brake with a roll away prevention feature that can put excessive pressure on the brake rotor in certain circumstances. During certain driving maneuvers, the brake system may react with an excessive clamp force that fractures the rotor which decreases brake performance. An unexpected decrease in brake performance can cause a vehicle crash without prior warning.

 

SERVICE ACTION

FCA US will conduct a voluntary safety on all affected vehicles to update the Brake System Module (BSM) software. The remedy for this condition is not currently available. Dealers will be notified of the launch of this safety recall by way of established communication methods. This recall is estimated to launch in 3rd Quarter of 2023.
