Land Rover has issued a recall for a couple of its off-roaders for an issue having to do with the passenger airbag.

2010-2015 Land Rover LR2; 2012-2013 Range Rover Evoque

The Problem: Certain Land Rover LR2s and Evoques may be equipped with a faulty component within the Occupant Classification System ECU that may cause the airbag to be partially or fully disabled. In certain Range Rover Evoque crossovers, a good indicator at the defect could be a continuously lit SRS (Supplementary Restraint System) warning lamp. The fact that the airbag may not deploy increases the risk of injury in the event of a crash.

The Fix: Dealers will update the Restraint Control Module software for free, and owners will begin receiving notifications starting August 30.

Number of Vehicles Potentially Affected: Approximately 17,066 2010-2015 Land Rover LR2s and 23,485 2012-2013 Range Rover Evoques built at the Halewood assembly plant between January 27, 2009 and July 1, 2014 affected by this recall.
