Jaguar Land Rover North America has issued a recall for more than 7,000 model year 2018 Range Rover Velar vehicles.

What's the issue?

In the affected vehicles, the air inlet door linkages for the ventilation system may detach, preventing the system from clearing fog or condensation from the windshield and windows.

If condensation or fog cannot be cleared, the driver's visibility may be affected, increasing the risk of a crash.

What happens next?

Owners of the recalled Range Rover Velar vehicles will be notified beginning in mid-April 2018. Dealers will then update the vehicle software to control the length of movement of the ventilation actuator arm. This update will be performed free of charge to owners.
