Component(s):
Potential Number of Units Affected: 5,238

All Products Associated with this Recall:

LAND ROVER RANGE ROVER 2014

Manufacturer: Jaguar Land Rover North America, LLC

SUMMARY:
Jaguar Land Rover North America, LLC (Land Rover) is recalling certain model year 2014 Land Rover Range Rover vehicles manufactured from May 7, 2013, to October 10, 2013. In the affected vehicles, the turn signal indicator may not flash at a double rate or click at a double-rate to give a notification to the driver of a front turn signal malfunction. Thus, these vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 108, "Lamps, reflective devices, and associated equipment."

CONSEQUENCE:
Without a warning that a front turn signal is malfunctioning, the driver would continue to use the vehicle, unaware that other drivers on the road are not being notified that the vehicle is turning, increasing the risk of a crash.

REMEDY:
Land Rover will notify owners, and dealers will update the vehicle software, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on, or before, May 27, 2014. Land Rover's number for this recall is P042.

NOTES:
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

SUMMARY:
Jaguar Land Rover North America, LLC (Jaguar) is recalling certain model year 2013 and 2014 XF 2.0L GTDi vehicles manufactured May 2013 through October 2013. The hose clamp for the Charge Air Cooler (CAC) hose may be out of position and loose, allowing the hose to detach.

CONSEQUENCE:
If the CAC hose detaches, the engine may stall, increasing the risk of a crash. Additionally, steering and brake assistance may be lost further increasing the risk.

REMEDY:
Jaguar will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the CAC hose to make sure its clamp is in the correct position and tight, free of charge. The recall is scheduled to begin in late May 2014. Owners may contact Jaguar at 1-800-452-4827. Jaguar's recall number is J034. Note: This recall is an expansion of recall 13V-341.
