Customer deliveries of the new Range Rover only began on August 17, but it’s already subject to a recall notice.
Jaguar Land Rover Australia is recalling 19 examples of its flagship model because exhaust bracket fixing nuts could become loose and fall off, causing hot exhaust gas to leak into the engine bay, potentially starting a fire.
This recall affects new-generation Range Rover diesel models built during the 2022 and 2023 model years.
“Due to a manufacturing defect, the exhaust bracket fixing nuts may not have been tightened to specifications and could become loose or detach over time,” said the company in its recall notice.
“This may cause hot exhaust gas to leak into the engine bay and could result in a vehicle fire.”
