Volvo is to recall 7,000 cars in the UK powered by five-cylinder diesels after a software glitch was discovered that could mean the engine cuts out.
Models affected include four-wheel drive cars built from mid-2015 in the 60 and 70 series.
The engine is being phased out across Volvo models over the next few years as the brand moves towards its newly developed Drive-E four-cylinder powertrains - and is no longer available in front wheel drive vehicles in the UK.
A Volvo spokesman told Sky News "the experience isn't a nice one" but would be barely noticeable if travelling at speed, as it would restart immediately.
Worldwide, 59,000 vehicles are affected.
