Jaguar Land Rover is recalling a range of vehicles, with 976 Discoverys, 1081 Range Rover Sports, 62 Range Rovers, 35 Jaguar XFs and 15 Jaguar XJs recalled owing to a risk of engine cutout.
The vehicles affected are from the 2012 to 2014 model year range, fitted with either the 3.0 litre turbo diesel V6 or 4.4 litre turbo diesel V8 engines.
The fault is linked to the engine’s crank position sensor, which will be replaced as part of the recall. Engines may cutout unexpectedly and be unable to restart taking steering and brake assistance with them, making the vehicles more difficult to control.
Hyundai has issued a recall of its current generation Hyundai Tucson TL/TLe owing to a fault with the bonnet safety catch.
In certain conditions, the latch can become unlatched whilst the vehicle is in motion, which could potentially result in the bonnet lifting suddenly, blocking the driver’s forward vision.
Both Hyundai and Jaguar Land Rover will notify owners of the recalls, but anyone wishing to know more should contact their local dealer.
