According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Jaguar Land Rover North America is issuing yet another recall.
The federal agency has reported that the company decided to issue the recall for the 2014 Evoque model for a very similar reason behind the Jaguar recall that affected other vehicles recently. The reports indicate that the vehicles affected by this particular recall come with certain bolts that connect the right hand rear suspension link arm that could fail since they may have been damaged during the vehicle production process.
Jaguar has announced that the vehicles that were manufactured between November 27, 2013 and December 4, 2013 may pose a major risk to drivers because the bolts may fail while the vehicle is in use, which could cause the link arm to separate from the running vehicle. If that occurs, the driver will lose control over the vehicle, which could result in a crash.
The official recall campaign is expected to begin in May 2014. If you were affected by this recall and you would like to know more about what you should do to have this issue addressed, contact Jaguar Land Rover for more details. According to the NHTSA, owners are being notified and dealers will have the connecting bolts replaced for free. The bolts for the right hand rear suspension link arm are affected and should be replaced for free as soon as possible.
