Land Rover Auto Recalls

March 3, 2015

Land Rover has just recalled over 150,000 vehicles in the U.S. The recalls are related to brakes and airbags, both critical components of safety. Here is a brief overview of the recalls:

  • 2013-2014 Range Rover and 2014 Range Rover Sport:  Brake vacuum hoses may have been routed incorrectly. The vacuum hose can rub against other parts and split open, completely disabling the power assist and making the pedal feel hard. A total of 24,679 vehicles are affected. Starting March 13, dealers will reroute the brake hoses, install a clip, and replace any damaged hoses. Call your dealer to schedule an appointment for the no-cost repair. 
     
  • 2006-2012 Range Rover: One or both of the front brake hoses may rupture causing the loss of brake fluid, which could increase the distance required to stop safely.  A total of 74,648 vehicles are affected. Starting March 13, dealers will replace both the left and right hoses. Call your dealer to schedule an appointment for the no-cost repair. 
  • 2013-2015 Range Rover and 2014-2015 Range Rover Sport:  A light weight adult front seat passenger may be improperly classified by the occupant classification system (OCS), thereby, disabling the air bag.  Starting April 17th, dealers will update the OCS software, free of charge.
