What’s the Problem?

This NHTSA Recall began on Jan. 7, 2021, and affects Alfa Romeo Giulia vehicles from model year 2020.

These cars were sold with rear brake discs that may fracture during vehicle operation, which may result in a reduction of braking performance and increase the risk of a crash.

If you purchased an Alfa Romeo that is affected by this recall, you should stop using it immediately and contact your Chrysler dealer for free replacement rear brake discs and pads.

Chrysler’s number for this recall is W86.

Alfa Romeo Giulia Recalled for Software Issues

In August 2019, about 22,000 model-year 2018-19 Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio vehicles were recalled over software issues that could cause the instrument panel to indicate a fuel level that’s higher than the actual level, increasing the risk of a vehicle stall and crash.

Alfa Romeo began notifying owners on Sept. 13. Owners can call the NHTSA’s vehicle safety hotline to learn more.

To fix the problem, dealers will update the body control module software.

Per the Highway Safety Act of 1970, vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part, free of charge. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, you should contact the manufacturer immediately.
