Tire Monitoring System Issue Leads to Land Rover Recall

Post On 11-18-2014

According to a series of news reports, Jaguar Land Rover North America has recently indicated that the affected units of the 2013 and 2014 LR4 vehicles and the 2014 Range Rover and Range Rover Sport have been recently recalled over a potential tire failure risk that could eventually lead to personal injury accidents.

The official recall announcement reads that the potentially risky vehicles come with certain Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems that might not learn the locations of each tire’s individual sensors. This may trigger the tire pressure warning light to stay lit constantly. This issue could cause the driver to simply forget to check his or her tires for their air pressure, thus increasing the risk of a tire failure incident that would eventually contribute to the increased risk of personal injury.

Since the problem may lead to serious auto accidents that could expose you and your loved ones to serious personal injury threats, the firm has issued a recall campaign along with the NHTSA to ensure that all affected vehicle owners are aware of the risks of not having their vehicles fixed. Land Rover has indicated that all affected vehicles with the potentially defective Body Control Module software should have their vehicle inspected at an authorized dealer where the software will be updated for free. The official recall campaign should begin in the beginning of December.

Do not allow this or another recall campaign affect you because you did not respond promptly enough. Too often, people are injured in auto accidents caused by equipment failure that could have been avoided if the driver had responded to the recall campaign right away. The year of 2014 has been the worst for auto recalls, therefore consumers are being urged to not ignore when safety recalls affecting their cars are issued.
