Recall Alert: 2013-2014 Land Rover Range Rover

2013-2014 Land Rover Range Rover Recalled For Airbag System Flaw

Jan 6, 2014




Jaguar Land Rover has issued a recall for Range Rover SUVs from the 2013 and 2014 model years. According to a bulletin from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a number of those vehicles suffer from a problem with their safety systems, which could dramatically increase the risk of injury to occupants during a collision.

Quote:
The problem stems from an issue with the Supplemental Restraint System connector found in the driver's and front passenger's seats. Due to a flaw in the Range Rover's design, the connectors may become unattached over time, thus disabling the Supplemental Restrain System.

Unfortunately, the Supplemental Restraint System is responsible for triggering the SUV's side air bags. So, if the system is disabled, the side air bags probably won't deploy during an accident, increasing the likelihood of injury for the driver and/or front-seat passenger.

Jaguar Land Rover says that it will begin informing owners of the recall by January 17, 2014. After receiving an official recall notice, owners will be able to take their vehicles to Land Rover dealers, who "will modify the area around the connector to prevent it from becoming disconnected, free of charge".

All told, the recall is expected to affect 3,912 vehicles in the U.S., so clearly, not all 2013 and 2014 Range Rovers will be included. (For reference, Land Rover sold 1,340 of the SUVs in December 2013 alone.) However, neither Land Rover nor NHTSA has clarified which features or dates of manufacture will qualify vehicles for recall status.

If you have questions, you're encouraged to contact Land Rover at 800-637-6837, option #9, and ask about recall #P037. Or, if you prefer, you can contact NHTSA at 888-327-4236 and inquire about campaign 13V607000.
