In the US, JLR is recalling 70 2012 Land Rover LR2s and 2012 Range Rover Evoques because a rear brake caliper could detach, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). A spokesperson said, 'The rear brake caliper retaining bolts may be insufficiently torqued,' summarisng the problem. 'Insufficiently torqued brake caliper bolts may result in the brake caliper detaching. A detached brake caliper may lead to a loss of brake function. Additionally, the caliper may strike a wheel, resulting in the sudden deflation of a tire. Either situation may increase the risk of a crash.'
JLR has told federal safety regulators that some customers have reported 'abnormal brake noise from the rear of the vehicle while driving or when the service brakes are applied.'
The affected vehicles were manufactured on June 11, 2012. US JLR dealers will inspect and tighten the rear brake caliper retaining bolts and the recall is expected to begin on January 18. US Owners can contact Jaguar Land Rover at 1-800-452-4827.
