Recall roundup: Range Rover for loose windshield image

The British based automaker Land Rover has recently announced a recall for the 2012 Range Rover vehicles because of a problem with the windshield, which may come loose.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, only 36 units of the 2012 Range Rover will be affected by this recall in the United States, and their owners will have to schedule a trip back to the dealers in order to fix it. The NHTSA says that if ignored, the problem with the windshield, which may come loose, can lead to an injury or a possible crash.
