Jaguar Land Rover North America, LLC is recalling certain model year 2013 and 2014 Range Rover vehicles. In the affected vehicles, due to insufficient clearance, the supplemental restraint system (SRS) connector located in the driver and front passenger side seat of the vehicle may become disconnected, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
If the connector becomes disconnected, the driver and/or passenger seat side air bag may not function. In the event of a crash necessitating side air bag deployment, the seat occupant is at an increased risk of injury.
Land Rover will notify owners, and dealers will modify the area around the connector to prevent it from becoming disconnected, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on January 17, 2014. Customers may contact Land Rover at 1-800-637-6837, Option 9. Land Rover's number for this recall is P037.
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
