Land Rover recalling 2010-2011 LR2 models

2010 Land Rover LR2

Here is some recall news that you probably don’t care about… unless you own a 2010-2011 Land Rover LR2. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Land Rover is recalling 3,000 LR2 models from the 2010-2011 model year.

“The shorting bar in the clock spring may become disconnected when the driver’s air bag module connector is installed,” NHTSA said in a statement. As a result, “the driver’s frontal airbag may not deploy as intended or at all and therefore will not be able to properly protect the driver, increasing the risk of injury.”

To fix the issue, Land Rover dealers will install a spacer into the driver’s airbag clock spring harness connector free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on or before Dec. 13, 2010. Owners can call Land Rover at 800-637-6837.
