The Swedish brand will be forced to withdraw more than 16 thousand cars in China. The reason for the recall was the possible malfunction of the emergency call communication module in the event of an accident or breakdown.

It is reported that the Chinese division of Volvo will be forced to withdraw 16,500 units of its own cars. The recall is due to a defect in the vehicle communication module (VCM). This was reported on Sunday by Xinhua.

According to preliminary information of the local authorities, the detected defect was found on several cars of Volvo XC90, S90, V90CC and XC40 models, released from 2016 to 2018. According to published data, the mass failure is fixed in the software of the VCM module. As a result of this fault, cars do not have the ability to automatically communicate with the emergency control room at the time of the accident.

As part of a revocable campaign, diagnostics of faulty elements, flashing, repair or replacement of a faulty module will be carried out. All work will be carried out exclusively by the manufacturer.

Meanwhile, Volvo showed an empty booth to visitors at the Los Angeles Auto Show. At the usual place there will be no cars, but the Swedish brand will help everyone to plunge into the interactive world of future cars.
