Recall roundup: Land Rover LR2 and Range Rover Evoque

Land Rover has recently issued a recall for the LR2 and for the Range Rover Evoque models, because of a problem with the front passenger airbag.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there are a total of 40,551 units of the Land Rover LR2 and Range Rover Evoque which will be affected by this recall. Their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealerships because of the problem with the front passenger airbag, which might fail to deploy, increasing the risk of injury.

“A component within the Occupant Classification System (OCS) Electronic Control Unit (ECU) may fail, resulting in the front seat passenger air bag being totally or partially disabled. In the event of a crash necessitating air bag deployment, if the air bag is disabled, the air bag may not deploy or may not deploy properly, increasing the risk of injury to the front seat passenger”, said the NHTSA in its official press release.

Owners of the Land Rover LR2 and Range Rover Evoque will be notified by the car manufacturer on the recall and the affected models will be the 2010 – 2015 LR2 and the 2012 – 2013 Range Rover Evoque. The recall should begin on August 30. For more details on the subject, you can contact Land Rover at 1-800-637-6837 or the NHTSA at 1-888-327-4236.
