AFTERSALES BULLETIN

OCTOBER 1, 2018

 

Jaguar Land Rover North America, LLC has informed the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) of its intent to perform a voluntary Safety Recall on certain 2018 model year Land Rover Discovery, Range Rover Sport, and Range Rover vehicles imported into the United States market. Information relating to this Recall will be posted on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website.

United States Federal regulations require that retailers must be notified within a reasonable time after the manufacturer decides that a defect that relates to motor vehicle safety or a noncompliance exists.

United States Federal law requires retailers to complete any outstanding safety Recall service before a new vehicle is delivered to the buyer or lessee. Violation of this requirement by a retailer could result in a civil penalty of up to $21,000.00 per vehicle.

This Recall Service Bulletin serves as notification to all Land Rover retailers in the United States and Federalized Territories that any affected new vehicles may not be sold and delivered for customer use until the Recall repair is completed.

 

DESCRIPTION OF ISSUE

An issue has been identified on certain Land Rover vehicles within the listed Affected Vehicle Range where the Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) feature will not be available. A warning message will not be displayed on the Instrument Cluster (IC) to inform the driver AEB is unavailable.

EFFECT ON VEHICLE OPERATION

In the event of a situation where AEB would normally activate to avoid or reduce the severity of an accident, the system will not activate as designed, increasing the risk of an accident.

 

SERVICE PROGRAM / REWORK ACTION

Owners will be notified by mail and instructed to take their vehicle to an authorized Land Rover retailer who will update the Image Processing Module A (IPMA) software to the latest level.

There will be no charge to owners for this action under this program.

 

OWNER NOTIFICATION

Owner notification is expected to occur on or before the week of November 11, 2018.

 

ACTION TO BE TAKEN

Use the Jaguar Land Rover claims submission system to make sure that the vehicle is affected by this Program prior to undertaking any rework action.

Retailers are required to HOLD affected new vehicles that are within your control and refrain from releasing the vehicles for new vehicle sale pending completion of the rework action. Affected vehicles already in the hands of customers should be updated at the next available opportunity.

Jaguar Land Rover North America recommends that affected sales demonstrator and loaner vehicles are repaired before use and that used vehicles are repaired before sale. Retailers who choose to proceed against this recommendation, where legally permitted, must clearly and conspicuously disclose the open recall to the applicable customers.

A Vehicles in this condition may pose an elevated risk to the safety of the vehicle occupants or other road users.

A Engineering research showed after an in-service upgrade to certain software, the AEB was switched off and would not therefore continue to operate correctly on certain 2018MY vehicles.
