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.

About the Recall

  • The recall affects the 2018-2020 model years of the Discovery, Range Rover, Range Rover Sport, and Range Rover Velar.
  • Land Rover started investigating this problem in November 2020. Engineers initial concerns were wrong as they thought the vehicles received the wrong digital display clusters that concealed the indicator light.
  • The recall (#N556) is expected to begin on April 23, 2021.
