Approximately 13,100 model-year 2020-21 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SUVs equipped with 19-, 20-. or 21- inch wheels are being recalled due to two different tire pressure issues. For SUVs equipped with 19-inch wheels, the tire inflation pressure label and the tire placard label state the incorrect tire pressures for the vehicle. For SUVs equipped with 20- or 21-inch wheels, the tire pressure monitoring system recommended pressure has been set incorrectly in the instrument cluster. As a result, the TPMS warning light will not illuminate when tire pressure dips 25 percent below the cold inflation pressure listed on the tire placard. In both cases, drivers may unknowingly operate the vehicle with low tire pressure, possibly causing loss of vehicle control and increasing the risk of a crash.
Land Rover will begin notifying owners on Nov. 13. 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 remedy the issues, dealers will apply the correct labels and update the instrument cluster 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.
