The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has been working hard on making sure that all recall announcements are issued promptly on the agency’s website. Too often, people are not made aware of the risks associated with recalls that impact their vehicles because they are not alerted directly. Making sure that the greater number of people have access to these reports could help to ensure their cars are fixed and accidents are prevented.
According to the report issued recently, Jaguar Land Rover has issued a recall that impacts thousands of 2015 LR4 vehicles. The units were produced between August of 2014 and February of 2015. All vehicles come with Anti-Lock Braking Systems that may have been developed with a software issue. Due to the problem, the ABS system may cause certain safety systems to become disabled as a result. Some of the systems that could be impacted include the Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), Roll Stability Control (RSC), Traction Control (TC), and the Hill Decent Control (HDC) systems. If one of these items fails, the vehicle’s stability may suffer, and the risk of an accident may increase
Land Rover has estimated that over 2,000 vehicles have been directly impacted. To avoid accidents, consumers are going to be contacted directly on June 5th. Until then, you may contact Land Rover if you have any pressing concerns related to the recall.
Impacted vehicles will have their ABS software updated for free.
