Land Rover is recalling approximately 14,800 model-year 2016-2017 Range Rover and Range Rover Sport vehicles due to an issue with the driver’s seat belt. The seat belt emergency locking retractor may not lock as intended during hard braking before a crash, increasing the risk of injury.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on June 3, 2022. Owners may contact Land Rover customer service at 800-637-6837 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To resolve the issue, dealers will inspect and replace the seat belt assembly, as necessary.
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.
