According to an online news report posted on cnet.com, Land Rover is initiating a recall of its Range Rover and Range Rover Sport SUVs due to a dangerous seat belt defect. The recall states that there is a defect in the device that locks the seat belt during an accident. The defect causes the seat belt to not lock during an accident. The Land Rover recall affects over 14,800 2016 and 2017 Range Rover and Range Rover Sport vehicles. These vehicles are potentially out of compliance with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards.
The specific problem originates from a defect in the emergency locking retractor connected to the driver’s seat belt. This flaw locks the seat belt in place during a crash and prevents the occupant’s body from being thrown forward. This reduces the impact between the occupant and their airbag. The fault can prevent the device from actually locking the seat belt.
The affected customers will need a Land Rover technician to inspect and replace the seat belt module to fix the defect. The inspection and the repair will perform the repair at no cost. Land Rover will notify owners of the defect by mail by June 3. The recall’s reference recall number is N678.
