Urgent Recall For 81 Land Rovers

Jaguar Land Rover Australia has issued an urgent recall for 81 vehicles due to a manufacturing defect that could cause an engine fire. The recall notice, issued by the Department of Infrastructure, affects models including the Range Rover, Range Rover Sport, Range Rover Velar, and Defender, manufactured between 2017 and 2023.

According to the recall notice, the defect is caused by a manufacturing issue that can cause the engine to overheat, leading to the rapid rupture of the engine-mounted plastic elbow in the cooling system. This could result in a coolant leak and a potential engine compartment fire, increasing the risk of injury or death to vehicle occupants or other road users.

Affected drivers may be alerted to the issue by the engine temperature warning light. Jaguar Land Rover has advised affected owners to take their vehicles to an authorized repairer for necessary repairs, which will be carried out free of charge.

The recall comes as part of the company’s commitment to ensuring the safety of its customers and is in compliance with Australian consumer law. The company has stated that it is taking all necessary steps to prevent similar issues from occurring in the future.

Owners of affected vehicles are advised to contact their nearest Jaguar Land Rover dealer or authorized repairer as soon as possible to schedule an appointment for the necessary repairs. A full list of affected vehicles can be found on the vehiclerecalls.gov.au website.
