Land Rover Recalls SUVs for Faulty Brake Hoses

Various Jaguar Land Rover models are being recalled for multiple issues.

The British automaker will recall over 104,000 vehicles after the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) published three notices that focused on safety issues leading to faulty braking and lighting. The largest portion of the recall affects 74,684 Range Rover SUVs built from April 15, 2005 to September 4, 2012. In those vehicles, the company will replace the front brake hoses, which could rupture and slow braking speed increasing the risk of a crash.

The issue also affects 24,679 Jaguar cars built from August 16, 2012 to January 8, 2014 and sport models manufactured from May 7, 2013 to January 8, 2014.

All the recalls will begin March 13 and will be carried out at not charge to the vehicle owners.
