    Land Rover's automatic high beams currently violate federal law because they don't indicate to the driver when they're active.

    There are 27,000 vehicles that need to be recalled to fix this problem. In theory, the automatic nature of the system should prevent any unintentional blinding of oncoming traffic. But drivers won't know one way or another until they get the fix.…

    Any 2020 Range Rover Evoque SUVs with the "climate specification" front seats have been recalled because the Dinamica cloth can burn way too fast. Climate and burning, how eerily topical.

    And because that's not enough, the SUVs (with or without the special seats) have also been recalled because their second row seat belt assemblies are failing. Will someone tell 2020 about the mercy rule?…

    Land Rover is issuing a recall for a dangerous electrical issue in the 2019-2020 Discovery SUV.

    They opened an investigation back in April after an increasing number of warranty claims were made saying the vehicle's electrical functions "cut out at highway speeds." That's never good.…

    Land Rover is recalling over 3,000 Land Rover Discovery Sport and Range Rover Evoque MHEV vehicles from the 2020 model year because of potential electrical fires.

    Here's how it breaks down (have your lab goggles ready because we're about the get really scienc-y here for a second)...

    The vehicle's 48-volt electrical systems overloads → causing the metal oxide semi-conductor field effect transisitors to break down (MOSFET) → leading to a short circuit in the DC-DC converter.…

    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. The investigation was originally opened in December of 2018.

    Federal investigators will use data from the new warranty claims as well as data from a group of peer vehicles to determine if and how widespread a potential recall would be.

    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.

    The brake booster uses vacuum created by the engine to help multiply the force that your foot applies to the master cylinder when you press the pedal to stop your SUV.…

    Land Rover's automonomous emergency braking (AEB) feature may be disabled without any warning light indicating there's a problem.

    The issue is believed to only affect 86 Range Rover, Range Rover Sport, and Discovery vehicles. The automaker says a driver won't know the system isn't working, a problem Land Rover says can be fixed by updating the software.

    Pro tip: never assume autonomous braking is going to work. A recall starting on November 9th will update the vehicle's software to fix the problem.

    How do you know an autonomous car is really going to stop when you're crossing the road?

    Jaguar and Land Rover think the answer is to slap a pair of creepy virtual eyes on the front of the car. Engineers have been working with cognitive psychologists to better understand how "friendly-faced eye pods" will give pedestrians confidence the self-driving vehicle sees them as they wait to cross a street. 👀

    The eyes will look right at you to give you the sense that it's safe to cross the road. Of course, it might also give you the sense that you're being sized up for the eventual robot takeover.

    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.

    In response to NHTSA's original investigation of the 2015 recall, Land Rover discovered 43 additional complaints related to faulty door latches, with 14 of those reports alleging doors opened while driving.

    The investigation has now been upgraded which is great. You know what else would be great? Not taking a year to do something about the problem.

    Someday the Takata problem will go away. Today is not that day.

    Land Rover is recalling more than 36,500 vehicles as part of a Takata airbag recall expansion of 3.3 million airbag inflators at risk of exploding when they deploy, even in a minor crash.

    The Jaguar and Land Rover passenger airbags are at risk of exploding due to a combination of age, moisture and the condition of the metal inflators. At least 21 people have been killed worldwide and more than 200 injured.

    The recall includes the 2010-2012 Range Rover in "Zone A" states, and the 2009-2012 Range Rover in "Zone C" states.
