Jaguar Land Rover North America is recalling more than 22,000 model year 2015 Discovery Sport and 2014-2015 Range Rover Evoque vehicles. In the affected vehicles the transmission sensor clusters may have insufficient crimps in the transmission wire harness, and as a result, the transmission may unexpectedly shift to neutral.

The recall is expected to begin on October 14, 2016.

Land Rover will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the automatic transmission serial number and if required, will update the transmission software to prevent the transmission from shifting into neutral due to a faulty crimp, free of charge.
