The British based automaker Land Rover has recently announced a recall for the Discovery, Discovery II and Range Rover Classic SUVs, because of a problem with the driveshaft couplings.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, owners of the 1995-1999 Land Rover Discovery, 1999-2004 Land Rover Discovery II and 1995 Range Rover Classic SUVs will have to take a trip back to the dealers because of an issue with the rear drive shaft couplings. The NHTSA is saying that some driveshaft coupling might have been incorrect manufactured and if ignored, the problem might lead to a vibration and eventually to a loss of the driveshaft while moving, making the vehicles lose drive and transmission park settings and increasing the risk of an accident.
Owners of the above mentioned models will be notified by Land Rover on the 23rd of April and dealers will replace the driveshaft couplers free of charge. Land Rover says that 180 units of the 1995-1999 Land Rover Discovery, 1999-2004 Discovery II and 1995 Range Rover Classic will be affected by this recall. Owners who bought a used vehicle have to contact the dealers to see if their vehicle is affected. For questions about this recall, owners can call Land Rover at 1-201-818-8500.
