Land Rover is recalling certain model year 2010 – 2015 LR2 and 2012 – 2013 Range Rover Evoque vehicles because of an airbag malfunction.

A component within the Occupant Classification System (OCS) Electronic Control Unit (ECU) may fail, resulting in the front seat passenger airbag being totally or partially disabled. Consequently, the airbag might not deploy properly, if at all, during a crash.

About 40,550 cars are potentially impacted by the recall.

Land Rover will notify owners, and dealers will update the Restraint Control Module software, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on Aug. 30. Owners may contact Land Rover customer service at 1-800-637-6837. Land Rover's number for this recall is P046.
