Land Rover has had a rough 2013 and still continues to be in bad shape, since the company continues to recall around 4,000 Range Rovers, due to airbag issues.
The 2013 and 2014 models use a connector for the seat-mounted airbags and the problem associated with that may lead to disconnections during a collision.
To detail the problem, the driver or the passenger`s seat side airbag might not properly function if the connector will become disconnected. In case of a crash, the occupant would suffer severe injuries.
The airbags concerned are related with the side parts of the car, since the airbags in the steering wheel and the dash are functioning very well.
Even if it doesn’t sound like big deal, the Land Rover Company has a huge responsibility of calling back the units by asking the owners to report in for service.
Land Rover has already begun sending notifications for the official recall, due on January 17. The remedy will be free of charge and customers are more than welcome to also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Hotline at 1-888-327-4236, for more information on the matter.
