Land Rover will be recalling nearly 4,000 of its flagship Range Rover models over air bag concerns. The 2013 and 2014 model year SUVS use a connector for their seat-mounted airbags that may become disconnected, meaning the airbags wouldn’t fire in the event of a collision.
Now, it’s important to note that this recall just affects the side airbags – the airbags in the dash and steering wheel still function. But the issue is still pressing enough that Land Rover will be asking owners to report in for service.
Notifications will be going out, and the official recall will kick off on January 17. Customers will need to get the area around the connector modified so that disconnection will be presented. This will, of course, be done free of charge.
