WASHINGTON — Jaguar Land Rover North America is recalling 492 2012-'13 Land Rover LR4 SUVs because the panoramic roof assembly may detach from the vehicle, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
"Due to the use of an incorrect primer, the panoramic roof adhesive may not adequately secure the roof assembly," said NHTSA in its recall summary. "The insufficient bond may result in the panoramic roof assembly detaching from the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash."
The company told federal safety regulators it had received a number of reports from consumers saying that the panoramic roof assembly "was either noisy, loose, leaking water into the vehicle or the panoramic roof panel." In one case, it detached from the vehicle.
No accidents or injuries have been linked to the recall, according to a document filed with NHTSA.
The affected vehicles were built from August 5, 2012 to September 18, 2012.
Edmunds says: If you own one of these SUVs and notice a problem with the panoramic roof assembly, it's a good idea to contact your dealer before the official start of the recall.
