Land Rover Recall Because Of Germany’s Brose Schließsysteme Software Glitch
Jaguar Land Rover North America has issued two recalls involving approximately 66,000 units of the 2013-2016 Range Rovers and Range Rover Sport vehicles due to a defect that could cause door latches to open while driving, not only posing a safety hazard in which passengers could fall out unexpectedly (if not wearing seatbelts), but serving to “distract drivers.” According to the NHTSA, the problem comes from a glitch in the keyless entry software, designed by Germany’s Brose Schließsysteme.
The recall, expected to begin next month involves only 2013-2016 Range Rover vehicles built between July 26, 2012 and March 9, 2015, and 2014-2016 Range Rover Sport vehicles built between February 18, 2013 and March 5, 2015. At the same time, a separate recall has been issued for nearly 500 LR4s manufactured between August 15, 2012 and September 18, 2012, due to a problem with the adhesive and primer used by Britain’s NSG Group which could “cause their panoramic roof assembly was either noisy, loose, leaking water into the vehicle or, in one case, had detached from the vehicle while the vehicle was in motion,” according to a bulletin from the NHTSA.
