Over 16,000 Volvo cars recalled in China

Added On December 4, 2018

Over 16,500 Volvos are being recalled in China due to problems with software. The company says it plans to fix the problem free of charge. 
According to China's Administration for Market Regulation, the recall affects both imported and domestically manufactured cars, including Volvo's XC90, S90, V90CC and XC40 models, manufactured between 2016 and 2018. 
The defective software affects the vehicle's positioning system. 
As a result, those vehicles may fail to provide location data to emergency personnel in the event of an accident.
Volvo and two Volvo manufacturers in China will update the defective software free of charge for affected owners.
