US: Four defects prompt Jaguar and Range Rover recalls
Four defects have resulted in four separate recalls of Jaguar Land Rover models sold in the US, the NHTSA said in emailed bulletins. The number of vehicles per recall ranges from two to just over 5,200.
NHTSA said some of 5,238 2014 Range Rover vehicles made from 7 May to 10 October, 2013 may have turn signal indicators that don't flash or click at a double rate to notify a front turn signal fault. Dealers will update the software.
JLR is recalling 1,589 2013 and 2014 Jaguar XF two-litre GTDi models also made between May and October 2013 to check for a loose charge air cooler (intercooler) hose that may be out of position and loose, allowing it to detach. Dealers will check the hose and clamp.
The automaker is also recalling 297 2013-2014 XJ, XF and XK because the toe links, used to control the alignment of the rear wheels, can separate from the rear subframe. Dealers will replace a nut and washer assembly.
Finally, just two 2014 Range Rover Evoques made on 27 November and 4 December 2013 will be recalled and checked to see if bolts connecting the right hand rear suspension link arm may have been damaged during production. Dealers will replace the bolts.
