Jaguar Land Rover Recalls 65K Cars Due to Software Bug

Jaguar Land Rover is recalling more than 65,000 Range Rovers and Range Rover Sport due to a keyless-entry software glitch, which can cause those models’ door latches to unlock randomly even when the car is moving. The affected models are the 2013 to 2016 Range Rover and the 2014 to 2016 Range Rover Sport; manufactured between July 26, 2012-March 9, 2015 (Range Rover) and February 18, 2013-March 5, 2015 (Range Rover Sport).

The company assured the public that no accidents or injuries have yet resulted from the said bug.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in the US sent a letter to Jaguar Land Rover regarding this issue.

Jaguar Land Rover will be notifying the affected vehicle owners directly so they can update their software free of charge in their local car dealers. The recall is expected to begin on August 7, 2015 and the owners may contact the company’s customer service at 1-800-637-6837.
