STOCKHOLM (Reuters) -- Volvo Car Group will recall 59,000 cars after some owners experienced their engines stopping and restarting while they were driving.
"We have no information that this has led to any accidents," Volvo spokesman Stefan Elfstrom told Reuters.
Elfstrom said owners of 2016 versions of Volvo's 60- and 70-series cars were being told to take their vehicles to dealers to get the software fault corrected.
The call back is for models with five-cylinder diesel engines, Elfstrom told Automotive News Europe in an email.
Elfstrom said the majority of the cars are in Europe, with about 24,000 of the vehicles having been sold in Sweden.
The recall does not affect models in the U.S. and China.
