Approximately 790 model-year 2016 Land Rover Range Rover and Range Rover Sport SUVs previously recalled in May 2019 are being recalled again as the repair may not have been completed properly. Due to a problem with the Keyless Vehicle Latching System (KV Latch), the doors may appear to be closed but could be unlatched. Unlatched doors may open while the vehicle is in motion, increasing the risk of injury or a crash.
Land Rover will begin notifying owners on July 24. 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 latches, replacing them if necessary, and update the KV latch 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.
