Land Rover has announced two separate recalls for its models recently.
According to the company, the first recall is referring to certain 2013 to 2016 model year Range Rover vehicles, which have been produced between July 26, 2012 and March 9, 2015, along with the 2014 to 2016 Range Rover Sport, made between February 18, 2013, to March 5, 2015. There are a total of 65,352 units affected and their owners will have to take them back to the dealers because of the doors may “unlatch unexpectedly when closed”. If this happens, the distraction may increase the risk of a crash. Owners will be notified and the dealers will update the keyless entry software, free of charge. This recall is expected to begin on the 7th of August, 2015.
The second recall announced by Jaguar Land Rover North America is referring to the 2012 to 2013 Land Rover LR4 models, made between August 15, 2012, and September 18, 2012. The total number of affected units stands at 492 and these have been recalled because of a problem with the panoramic roof adhesive, which may not secure the roof assembly because of an incorrect primer. There is a risk of the panoramic roof assembly detaching from the model and this will increase the risk of a crash. The company’s dealers will apply the correct primer, free of charge to the owners. The recall is expected to begin on the 7th of August. If you happen to own one of the vehicles mentioned above, you should contact Land Rover customer service at 1 800 637 6837 or the NHTSA at 1 888 327 4236 for any extra details.
