REGULATORY INFORMATION

Jaguar Land Rover North America, LLC and Jaguar Land Rover Canada ULC have informed the National Highway Traffic Safety

Administration (NHTSA) and Transport Canada (TC) of their intent to perform a Safety Recall on certain 2023 model year Range Rover Sport vehicles imported into the United States and Canada markets. Information relating to this Safety Recall will be posted on the NHTSA and TC websites.

This Safety Recall Administration Bulletin serves as notification to all retailers in the United States and Canada markets that any new affected vehicles may not be sold and delivered for customer use until the Safety Recall repair is completed. Violation of this requirement by a retailer/authorized repairer, in the USA only, could result in a maximum civil penalty of up to the equivalent of $27,168.00 USD per violation and the equivalent of $135,828,178.00 USD for a related series of violations.

 

DESCRIPTION OF ISSUE AND THE EFFECT ON VEHICLE OPERATION

A concern has been identified with the right hand tailgate and body mounted rear lamps which may experience water ingress leading to one or more lamp failures including loss of brake/stop lamp, outer marker lamp, reversing lamp and turn signal indicator. Loss of rear right hand lamp system functionality increases the risk of a rear end crash

 

OWNER NOTIFICATION

Initial owner notification is expected to occur on or before 9th February 2024.

 

ACTION TO BE TAKEN

Check the JLR Warranty Portal to make sure affected vehicles are correctly identified prior to starting this campaign. The Warranty Portal will be updated to reflect only those vehicles affected.

Retailers/authorized repairers are required to Quarantine 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 with customers should be updated at the next available opportunity. JLR North America recommends that affected sales demonstrator and loaner vehicles are repaired before use and that used vehicles are repaired before sale. Retailers/authorized repairers who choose to proceed against this recommendation, where legally permitted, must clearly and conspicuously disclose the open recall to the applicable customers.

The Safety Recall repair procedures and any required parts and/or software are not currently available. A Safety Recall repair campaign will be published when all repair procedures and all required parts and/or software are available.

Retailers/authorized repairers are reminded that they must not sell vehicles identified as affected by this campaign until such time as the repair has been successfully completed.

Chronology of Defect / Non-compliance Determination:

Field reports were progressively received from October 2022 where water ingress of tail lamps was reported. The issue was closely monitored and in February 2023 a Product safety and Compliance Committee (PSCC) investigation opened.

In March 2023, a team of engineers was requested to investigate this matter, identify the scope of any issues and seek to define if there is a systemic trend related to tail lamp water ingress.

The investigating team from April to September 2023 sought field returns of lamps exhibiting water ingress and, with the help of the component supplier, investigated the conditions found on these returned lamp units.

In September 2023 a detailed review of the matter was completed at PSCC where it was found that factors outside of the lamp manufacturer control could contribute to the risk of water ingress into the tall lamps. The PSCC requested that the Vehicle Assembly Plant quality team investigate aspects of vehicle finessing completed as part of the final vehicle assembly processes. The investigation was returned to PSCC in early November 2023 where initial findings from this Plant Quality review were received.

During the course of the investigation, data analysis was completed. This data analysis indicated there was a difference between the rates of issues seen from left to right hand rear lamps. When this data was reviewed in November 2023 at PSCC, a request was made to conduct an investigation to confirm any technical basis for this difference.

At the PSCC of December 5, 2023, the investigating team explained that there were differences between the approaches taken in the Vehicle Assembly Plant to finesse the gaps and flush fit of tail lamps such that the right hand side lamps were being mechanically altered whereas the left hand were not.

At PSCC of December 12, 2023 the scope of the issue was discussed, the consequence of right hand tail lamp failure was reviewed and it was agreed that the issue be progressed to the Recall Determination Committee (RDC) for consideration.

The RDC reviewed the issue on December 14, 2023 and concluded that this issue represents an unreasonable risk to safety, and a voluntary safety recall should be conducted to remedy the vehicles identified.

There have been no reported accidents, injuries or fires as a result of this concern.

There are approximately 144 warranty claims related to this matter.
