Recall affect Land Rover Discovery Sport and Range Rover Evoque

Land Rover models recalled over engine issue

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) has issued a recall on two Land Rover models over an engine defect.

The engine harness in the vehicles may have been routed incorrectly and friction from normal engine vibration could cause the outer sheath of the cable to wear out exposing the engine harness wires.

Exposed wires could contact the water charge air cooler bracket and create arcing and a short circuit.

Drivers may experience loss of electric steering, smoke or fire under the bonnet or an engine cut-out and are advised to park their vehicle outside away from the home and other vehicles.

The 2.0L diesel auto Land Rover Discovery Sport MY17 and the Range Rover Evoque MY16 & MY17 produced between July and October 2016 have been recalled.

Jaguar Land Rover Australia will contact owners by letter with instructions to take their affected vehicle to an authorised dealer for rectification.
