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.More information on carcomplaints.com
There are more than 65,000 Land Rovers that can have their doors open accidentally due to a defectiv door latch. Or, in some cases, fail to close at all. The problem was first recalled in 2015, but an investigation was opened two years late
