Control Arm Issue Leads to Recall of Land Rover Discovery and Range Rover Evoque Vehicles
The affected vehicles have front lower control arm fasteners that may fail due to an assembly error
Jaguar Land Rover North America has issued a recall affecting certain model year 2016-2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport and 2016-2017 Range Rover Evoque vehicles.
The affected vehicles have front lower control arm fasteners that may fail due to an assembly error, possibly resulting in separation of the steering knuckle.
If the fasteners were to fail causing the knuckle to separate, vehicle handling may be affected, increasing the risk of a crash.
About 220 Discovery Sport and Evoque vehicles are included in this recall.
Land Rover will notify owners of the recalled vehicles, and local dealers will replace the hardware that connects the front lower control arm to the knuckle, free of charge.
This recall is expected to begin on January 30, 2017. Owners with additional questions can contact Land Rover customer service at (800) 637-6837. Land Rover's reference number for this recall is Q650/Q651.
