Recall roundup: Range Rovers for braking problems image

Jaguar Land Rover America has issued a recall for several units of the Range Rover because of a problem with their brakes.

Several units of the Range Rover, from the previous generation, are the subject of a recall which has been recently announced by the British based automaker. According to the company, owners of these models will have to take a trip back to the dealers in order to get the issue solved, in which the flexible front brake hoses can rupture and this can lead to the braking fluid being lost, increasing the distance to stop and making the risk of a crash even higher.

“One or both of the flexible front brake hoses may rupture causing loss of brake fluid. If one or both of the flexible brake hoses fails, the vehicle may require a longer distance to stop, increasing the risk of a crash”, says the company in its official press release.

The affected vehicles are the 2006 to 2012 Range Rovers, which have been assembled between the 15th of April, 2005, and the 4th of September, 2012. The company’s dealers will be replacing the left and right front brake hoses free of charge. Owners of these models will be notified by Jaguar Land Rover and the recall is expected to begin on the 13th of March. For any extra details on the topic, owners can contact the Land Rover customer service at 1 800 637 6837 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1 888 327 4236.
