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)...
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.
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.
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
creepyvirtual 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.👀
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.
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.
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.
