Land Rover Recalls 2010 and 2011 LR2 SUVs for Faulty Airbags

Models built between November 12, 2009 and August 23, 2010 are being recalled.

The 2011 Land Rover LR2, which will face competition from the new Porsche Cajun in the next few years, has been recalled for a faulty air bag.

Land Rover LR2 SUVs from the 2010 and 2011 model years are being recalled for a problem with the driver’s frontal airbag. The Land Rover LR2 recall affects SUVs built from Nov. 12, 2009 to Aug. 23, 2010. A fault in the car’s airbag system may cause the driver’s side front airbag to malfunction and not deploy as intended. The NHTSA says that 2,956 Land Rover LR2 models are being recalled to fix the potentially dangerous defect.

The NHTSA says that the shorting bar clock spring may have become disconnected when the airbag module connector was installed at the factory, which could cause the airbag of the Land Rover LR2 to either deploy wrong or not at all, increasing the chances of an injury during a crash, according to Autoblog.

Land Rover will begin the recall of the LR2 on or before Dec. 13. Land Rover will install a spacer in the clock spring harness connector, which will ensure that the airbag functions properly. Land Rover dealers will perform the recall free of charge.

Owners of Land Rover LR2 models affected by the recall will be contacted by Land Rover, but owners who have any questions can reach the company at 1-800-637-6837 or the NHTSA at 1-888-327-4236.
