Approximately 3,400 model-year 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque SUVs are being recalled because the adhesive bond attaching a metal plate to the headliner can fail after exposure to very cold temperatures. In the event of a crash necessitating the deployment of side curtain airbags, the metal plate could detach from the headliner and strike vehicle occupants, increasing the risk of injury.
Land Rover will begin notifying owners on Jan. 17. 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 apply self-adhesive fleece tape to the metal plate and to the driver and passenger sides of the headliner.
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.
