Faulty back row seats are prompting a recall from an auto manufacturer.

Jaguar Land Rover North America (Land Rover) is recalling certain model year 2015 Range Rover and Range Rover Sport vehicles after the discovery that the second row seat back may not latch properly, especially in the center section. In the event of a crash, if the seat back is not properly latched, the seat belt may not properly restrain the occupant, increasing their risk of injury.

Land Rover believes that about 850 vehicles are in need of maintenance.

Land Rover will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the second row seat mechanism, replacing it as required, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin November 13, 2015.

Owners with questions can contact Land Rover customer service at (800) 637-6837.
