2013-2016 Range Rover, Sport Models Recalled for Door Latch

More than 65,000 Units Affected

Jul 8, 2015
The Range Rover and Range Rover Sport are relatively low-volume vehicles, with the Land Rover brand as a whole selling fewer vehicles in a year than Ford sells F-Series trucks in a month. So for a recall to involve more than 60,000 units is a big deal for the small brand. A total of 65,352 units of the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport from the 2013 to 2016 model years are being recalled for a faulty door latch, with reports of the doors swinging open while the vehicle is in motion. In NHTSA’s typically dry, clinical language, the agency states: “Vehicle doors not latched in either the primary or secondary state may, during driving, open. This can increase the risk of a vehicle crash or compromise the safety of vehicle occupants.”
The supplier of the door latch components in questions is Brose Schlieβsysteme GmbH based in Ruppertal-Ronsdorf, Germany. Dealers were officially notified of the recall on June 16, and owners will be notified starting August 7. To see if your vehicle is affected, go to landroverusa.com/ownership and enter your vehicle’s VIN number. Once authorized, dealers will fix the issue at no charge to the owner.
