Land Rover Investigation News
Range Rover Evoque owners continue to have problems with a sudden loss of their power brakes, and they've made over 200 warranty claims. That's been enough to get the National Highwaty Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to upgrade their investigation.
30,000 Range Rover Evokes are under investigation for a sudden loss of power brakes. According to the government, a Range Rover Evoque driver says he was driving when he lost the brakes with his wife and two kids in the vehicle. Only after shifting into NEUTRAL was he able to get the vehicle stopped on the shoulder. 😳 At the repair shop they found that the brake booster had failed. And they aren’t the only ones.
It's been nearly a year since the feds opened an investigation into Land Rover's door latch recall and in that time plenty of new complaints have come in.
NHTSA has received five unique reports alleging incidents of doors opening with the SUVs in motion, then repaired by replacing the latch assemblies. One Range Rover customer was allegedly injured by a door that inadvertently opened.
Two years ago Land Rover recalled 66,000 SUVs because their doors could fly open while driving. But the feds are now questioning if the recall included enough vehicles and if the software update was an adequate repair.
