Jaguar Land Rover have initiated a safety recall involving a small number of 2022 Land Rover New Range Rover vehicles manufactured at the Jaguar Land Rover plant in Solihull, between February 2. 2022 to February 22, 2022.
The problem was first detected following a new model introduction review in April 2022, when a 2022 New Range Rover vehicle was found with both front crash sensor fasteners not installed correctly. An investigation was initiated and a stop shipment was issued. Further investigation into manufacturing data found that there was a possibility that a small number of affected vehicles may have been shipped to dealers.
According to the safety report, a concern has been identified in certain 2022 Model Year New Range Rover vehicles where the front crash sensor fastener may not have been installed to the specified level of torque. There is a risk that the front crash sensors may become loose resulting in incorrect operation of the active restraints system. If front crash sensors become loose, there is an increased risk of occupant injury or, in the case of an inadvertent frontal airbag deployment, loss of vehicle control which could increase the risk of a crash.
Owners receiving notices will be instructed to take their vehicle to an approved Land Rover dealer to have the front crash sensor fasteners inspected and torqued to the specified level.
