NEWS: Jaguar Land Rover is recalling 2012 LR2 and Range Rover Evoque vehicles
DECEMBER 2012 -- Jaguar Land Rover is recalling certain model year 2012 LR2 and Range Rover Evoque vehicles manufactured on June 11, 2012. The rear brake caliper retaining bolts may be insufficiently torqued. Insufficiently torqued brake caliper bolts may result in the brake caliper detaching. A detached brake caliper may lead to a loss of brake function. Additonally, the caliper may strike a wheel resulting in the sudden deflation of a tire. Either situation may increase the risk of a vehicle crash. Jaguar Land Rover will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and tighten the rear brake caliper retaining bolts, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on, or before, January 18, 2013. Land Rover's campaign recall number is P029. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov. 12V563000

NOVEMBER 2010 -- Land Rover is recalling certain model year 2010-2011 LR2 vehicles manufactured from November 12, 2009, through August 23, 2010. The shorting bar in the clock spring may become disconnected when the driver's air bag module connector is installed. The driver's frontal airbag may not deploy as intended or at all and therefore will not be able to properly protect the driver, increasing the risk of injury. Dealers will install a spacer into the driver's airbag clock spring harness connector. This service will be performed free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on or before December 13, 2010. 10V-581
DECEMBER 2009 - Jaguar Land Rover is recalling certain model year 2010 Range Rover vehicles for failing to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 208, "Occupant Crash Protection." These vehicles equipped with occupant classification system (OCS) may experience airbag warning lamp illumination on the instrument cluster. The passenger airbag will be disabled when the airbag warning lamp is illuminated as a result of this defect and the passenger airbag warning disable (PAWD) lamp in the overhead console will also illuminate. Deployment of the passenger airbag may not be achieved in the event of a vehicle crash increasing the risk of injury. Dealer will update the vehicle's restraints control module (RCM) with the integrated diagnostics system (IDS) tool with software from DVD 118.5 patch 16 or later. This service will be performed free of charge. The safety recall began on December 21, 2009. . 09V-467
JULY 2009 -- Land Rover is recalling 40 Model Year 2009 Range Rover vehicles. During the installation process it was identified that primer, applied by an automated glazing robot, was not being dispensed onto the glass. This omission can lead to the chemical bonding between the primer and the polyurethane adhesive not being activated and therefore the windshield not chemically bonded to the vehicle. Where the windshield is not chemically bonded, water could enter the vehicle and/or there may be increased wind noise. Full windshield retention may not be achieved in the event of an airbag deployment or during a vehicle crash. This increases the risk of injury in the event of a crash. Dealers will inspect the rear tailgate glass for the presence of primer and will prime the windshield glass as needed and free of charge. The recall began on July 17, 2009. 09V-261
DECEMBER 2008 -- Land Rover is recalling 19,168 MY 2003-2005 Range Rover vehicles. The front differential coupling sleeve and the propeller shaft may be misaligned, resulting in spline wear over a period of time. As the wear between the propeller shaft and the differential spline coupling progresses, noise and vibration are expected. Continued vehicle operation can eventually result in the splines shearing and a loss of drive, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will install a revised design of the propeller shaft, the flange kit and heat shield kit. The recall is expected to begin during January 2009. This recall was the subject of an Engineering Analysis, EA07-012, conducted by the Office of Defects Investigation. 08V635
JUNE 2008 -- Land Rover is recalling 37,142 MY 2005-2006 LR3 and Range Rover Sport vehicles. Relative motion between the steering wheel hub and/or the steering column cowl with the clockspring, which includes the driver side air bag circuitry, could result in fracturing of the air bag wiring connection. If an air bag wire fractures, the SRS warning light will illuminate on the instrument cluster. The SRS warning light indicates to the driver that there is a concern with the SRS system in the vehicle and that immediate repair is necessary. If the SRS warning light is ignored and a vehicle crash of sufficient severity to command deployment of the driver's air bag occurs, the air bag module may not deploy in the intended manner. The condition may result in the deployment of only one stage of the dual stage driver's air bag or the air bag may not deploy at all increasing the risk of serious injuries to the driver. Dealers will insert spacers between the lower left hand side of the column switch mounting point and the column lock to improve the alignment of the column switch. Two foam pads will also be fitted to the top of the steering column switch gear to provide assured clearance between the cowl and the clockspring face. The recall is expected to begin on or about July 21, 2008. . 08V248
FEBRUARY 2008 -- Land Rover is recalling 12,353 MY 2008 LR2 vehicles built with a sunroof. Failure of either the left or right hand side sunroof guide rail can occur when the sunroof is operated. Excessive stress can develop in the over-molded bracket which could lead to cracking during normal sunroof operation. If cracks occur and propagate in a certain area of the guide rail, fragments of the plastic over-mold material may detach from the guide rail and obstruct the operation of the sunroof. The obstruction could cause the sunroof, when operated, to bind, twist, and potentially detach from the operating mechanism. If the sunroof is subsequently cycled and a vertical force applied, i.e., a customer manually aiding the roof to close or wind lift, the glass panel can become fully detached from the vehicle, increasing the risk of injury. Dealers will install retention inserts to both sides of the glass panel guide rails. The recall is expected to begin during March 2008. Owners may contact Land Rover at 1-800-637-6837. 08V-055
ConsumerReports.org -- July 21, 2008 -- Land Rover is recalling over 37,000 LR3 and Range Rover Sport vehicles. The relative motion between the steering wheel hub and/or steering column cowl with the clockspring, which contains air bag circuitry, could cause a fracture in the driver-side air bag wiring connection. The SRS warning light will illuminate to alert the driver that a repair is necessary, but if a driver ignores the light and gets into a crash, the air bag may not deploy properly.
Dealers will make the necessary repairs to fix the alignment. The recall is expected to begin around July 21st. Owners may contact Land Rover at 1-800-637-6837.
