Approximately 22,000 model-year 2018-19 Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio vehicles are being recalled due to software issues. The instrument panel may indicate a fuel level that’s higher than the actual level, causing the vehicle to stall and increasing the risk of a crash.
Alfa Romeo will begin notifying owners on Sept. 13. Owners can call the automaker at 800-853-1403 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To fix the problem, dealers will update the body control module software.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
