Approximately 65,400 model-year 2013-16 Land Rover Range Rover and model-year 2014-16 Range Rover Sport SUVs are being recalled due to issues with the keyless latching system. The doors may appear to be closed but may be unlatched, due to a problem with the keyless vehicle latching system. This could lead to the door opening while the vehicle is in motion, increasing the risk of a crash.
Land Rover will begin notifying owners on July 19. Owners can call the automaker at 800-637-6837 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To fix the problem, dealers will inspect the KV Latch system for any issues and update the software.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
