Recall roundup: Land Rover Freelander and Range Rover Evoque image

The British based automaker Jaguar Land Rover has recently announced two separate recalls for the Land Rover Freelander and for the Range Rover Evoque.

According to the car manufacturer, approximately 800 units of the Range Rover Evoque will be affected by this recall and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers because of a problem with the steering.

Several units of the Range Rover Evoque, along with the Land Rover Freelander, will also be recalled because of an issue with the braking system.

“Land Rover is voluntarily conducting a safety recall to inspect the power assisted steering gear mounting fixings in certain Range Rover Evoque models and the brake calipers in certain Freelander and Evoque models. Customers will vehicles that are potentially affected by these issues will be contacted in the near future”, said a JLR spokesman.

The braking problem will affect approximately 600 units of the Range Rover Evoque and Land Rover Freelander. No reports on accidents or injuries related to these two problems have been reported yet. The affected vehicles have been produced in Halewood, Merseyside. The recall should begin soon but no exact date has been announced yet.
