JLR Australia is recalling a handful of Range Rover and Range Rover Sport models as their transmission could shift into neutral while driving.

    “The clutch plates within the hybrid transmission may not meet manufacturing specifications,” the company says in its recall notice.

    “As a result, the clutch plates may overheat causing material degradation and potential transmission oil contamination.

    “This may result in reduced oil pressure triggering the transmission to shift into neutral whilst driving.

    “An unintended shift into neutral resulting in loss of motive power whilst driving could increase the risk of an accident causing injury or death to vehicle occupants and/or other road users.”

    • A total of six vehicles are affected from 2023 to 2024
    • The Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) list is attached here
    • The original recall notice is attached here

    If you own an affected vehicle, you’ll need to contact a JLR dealership.

    A technician will run a diagnostic test to determine whether the clutch packs within the transmission are operating as expected.

    Should your vehicle’s transmission fail the test, it will be replaced, free of charge.

    If you have any further questions, you can contact the JLR Customer Relationship Centre on 1800 625 642.
