Land Rover is recalling approximately 18,824 model-year 2020 Range Rover Evoque vehicles. The supplemental restraint system (SRS) warning light software is programmed incorrectly, which may cause the warning light to malfunction and illuminate intermittently. An SRS system warning light that falsely illuminates could prevent the detection of an actual airbag system failure, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a crash.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on April 14, 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 update the restraints 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.
