Jaguar Land Rover has announced yet another recall which is affecting the Range Rover and the Range Rover Sport vehicles, because of another braking problem.
Just earlier today, we were telling you about a recall announced by Jaguar Land Rover for the Range Rover, because of a braking problem, and now the company is issuing yet another recall which is affecting the Range Rover Sport vehicles too. According to the car manufacturer, the affected models have a problem with the brake vacuum hose which can allow a hole to be worn in it, leading to a complete loss of braking assistance and increasing the risk of a crash.
“In the affected vehicles, the brake vacuum hose may have been incorrectly routed allowing a hole to be worn into it. If a hole is worn into the brake vacuum hose, a complete loss of braking assistance could occur, lengthening the distance required to stop the vehicle and increasing the risk of a crash”, says the NHTSA in its official press release.
The affected vehicles are the 2013 to 2014 Range Rover, made between the 16th of August, 2012, and the 8th of January, 2014, and the 2014 Range Rover Sport, produced between the 7th of May, 2013, and the 8th of January, 2014. Owners of these models will be notified by the carmaker and the recall will begin on the 13th of March. The company’s dealers will inspect the brake vacuum hose and correctly route it, if necessary, free of charge.
