LR Recall notice
« on: September 26, 2021, 08:07 PM »
Found this note on another LR forum:

"Land Rover is recalling more than 111,000 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SUVs from the 2010 through 2016 model years and Land Rover LR4 SUVs from the 2010 through 2016 model years because their fuel tanks may crack. This could possibly result in a fuel leak. The vehicles involved in the recall are equipped with either the 3.0-liter V6 or 5.0-liter V8 gasoline engines.

According to the automaker, customers may notice a fuel odor, see an amber warning light in the instrument cluster, and/or notice fuel on the ground. In some circumstances there is the possibility that vehicle static could be an ignition source for the leaking fuel, leading to a fire.

When customers reported this issue to their Land Rover dealers, technicians found that the fuel outlet flange on the fuel tank had cracked.

Land Rover says that owners who have already paid to have this defect repaired will be covered by the Land Rover reimbursement plan.
The Details​
Vehicles recalled: Approximately 111,000 vehicles, including 2010-2013 Range Rover Sport SUVs (56,121 vehicles) and 2010-2016 Land Rover LR4 SUVs (55,555 vehicles).

The problem: The fuel outlet flange that is mounted on the fuel tank may crack. This could result in fuel leaking from the tank.

The fix: Land Rover dealers will replace the fuel outlet flange with one of a revised design, free of charge.

How to contact the manufacturer: Land Rover will notify owners by mail, with letters expected to be sent on Oct. 8, 2021. Owners may contact Land Rover customer service at 800-637-6837. Land Rover’s number for this recall is N623.

NHTSA campaign number: 21V635.
