Thousands of Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles recalled
Tennessee residents who own Land Rover or Jaguar vehicles may be interested to learn about a recent vehicle recall that was announced. On Feb. 6, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced a recall of 104,000 cars due to faulty brakes and lights.
Jaguar Land Rover North America is recalling 74,648 Range Rovers because the front brake hoses on the vehicles may rupture and cause the cars to lose brake fluid. According to reports, the brake hose issue was investigated in November 2010 after car dealers noticed the hoses bulging. The case was closed in June 2012 and then reopened in November 2014 after an accident. Range Rovers built between model years 2006 and 2012 are affected by the recall.
Jaguar Land Rover North America is also recalling Range Rovers and Range Rover Sports from model years 2013 and 2014. The vehicles might have an improperly routed brake vacuum hose that could cause them to lose braking power. Finally, 4,787 Jaguar XK cars from model years 2012 through 2015 are being recalled due to faulty side parking lights. Owners of any of the recalled vehicles can visit Land Rover and Jaguar dealerships for a free repair.
A car owner who was involved in an accident that was caused by a faulty vehicle part might want to speak with an attorney about filing a claim for compensation. An attorney may be able to help a vehicle owner or car accident victim to prove that their injuries were a result of the defective vehicle part. Plaintiffs in cases involving malfunctioning car often claim financial reimbursement for their medical bills and pain and suffering.
