Volvo recalling 7,000 diesel cars (including S60 & XC60) for engine stalling problem
Volvo is recalling 59,000 cars over faulty software which can briefly shut down the engine and electric system - including 7,000 in the UK.
The company's spokesman, Stefan Elfstrom, told Sky News there have been no reports of the glitch causing an accident.
However, he said "the experience isn't a nice one" for affected customers.
Five 2016 diesel models are affected by the recall: the S60, V60, XC60, V70 and XC70.
Mr Elfstrom said the glitch would be "barely noticeable" if motorists are travelling at speed, as both the engine and electric system start up again immediately.
Volvo is now beginning to write to affected car owners, who will be able to contact their local dealership for the fault to be fixed for free.
It has identified the "root cause" of the problem and has released a software update which eliminates the glitch.
Although Volvo is recalling cars in 40 markets, half of the 59,000 affected models were sold in Sweden - with a significant number of the rest sold in the UK and Germany.
