Land Rover LR2, Range Rover Evoque Recalled For Loose Brake Caliper Bolts
Rear Brake Calipers May Come Loose, Strike Wheel
A relatively small number of 2012 model year Land Rover LR2 and Range Rover Evoque models may have loose rear brake caliper bolts. The loose bolts may result in a loss of rear braking function or the calipers coming loose and striking the wheel, which could lead to rapid tire deflation, resulting in injury.
The Problem: Some 2012 model Land Rover LR2 and Range Rover Evoque models have insufficiently torqued rear brake caliper mounting bolts. If the caliper becomes detached, it could result in a loss of rear brake function or could come loose and strike the wheel, resulting in a rapid loss of tire pressure, increasing the chances of an accident.
The Fix: Jaguar Land Rover will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and tighten the rear brake caliper retaining bolts at no charge. The recall campaign, number P029 will officially begin on January 18, 2013. Concerned owners can call Jaguar Land Rover at 800/452-4827 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888/327-4236.
Number of Vehicles Potentially Affected: 70 2012 model Land Rover LR2 and Range Rover Evoque models built on June 11, 2012.
