2015 Land Rover Range Rover Among Vehicles Recalled Because Wheels May Detach


WASHINGTONJaguar Land Rover North America is recalling 28 2015 Land Rover Range Rover, Range Rover Sport and LR4 SUVs because the wheels may detach, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

"The affected vehicles have wheel lug nuts that may crack and detach from the wheel hub stud," said NHTSA in its recall summary. "If one or more of the wheel lug nuts crack or detach from the wheel hub, the remaining lug nuts may be unable to keep the wheel secured to the vehicle.

"If the wheel detaches, loss of vehicle control would result, increasing the risk of a crash."

The automaker told federal safety regulators there are no reported accidents or injuries.

On January 22, 2015, a stop-shipment notification was issued by the Solihull assembly plant, where it was identified that some wheel nuts were cracking and detaching from the vehicle. The problem has since been corrected, Jaguar Land Rover told NHTSA.

Land Rover dealers will replace the wheel nuts with new wheel nuts. The recall is expected to begin on April 17. Owners can contact Land Rover customer service at 1-800-637-6837.

Edmunds says: Owners will have to wait for their official recall notice before scheduling a service appointment. But if you have an immediate concern, it's best to contact your dealer now.
