Approximately 1,500 model-year 2017-18 Land Rover Discovery SUVs equipped with low-line headlight assemblies are being recalled due to trailer light issues. The trailer lights may not function when towing a trailer with the trailer lights connected to the trailer sockets and with the daytime running lights activated. As a result, the following traffic won’t be aware the SUV is slowing down or stopping, increasing the risk of a crash.
Land Rover will begin notifying owners on May 8. 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 update the body control module 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.
