FRANKFURT - Volkswagen recalled 385,000 cars in Germany for a software update to their anti-lock brake systems, news agency DPA reported, citing a spokesman for the automaker.

Volkswagen's VW, Audi and Skoda brands were affected, it said.

According to DPA, the braking control system might not function properly in certain driving conditions, such as when the driver over-steered, under-steered or slammed on the brakes.

In the same month, Volkswagen recalled almost 50,000 vehicles in China due to brake problems when using cruise control.
