Land Rover has issued a recall of 500 vehicles due to the second-row seat frame having an improperly-welded latch, Autoblog reports.
The recall affects last-generation 2022-2023 model year Range Rovers, and only applies to “seven-seater Range Rover models built between February 11 and June 10, 2022.”
Land Rover has said the problem is “present in 100% of the SUVs being recalled.” No accidents, warranty claims, or field reports have been currently reported as a result.
The problem stems from the second row on the driver’s side, where “the seat frame may have a latch installed with a defective weld,” Land Rover stated. A warning message in the instrument cluster will appear if the seat fails to latch properly.
Land Rover will send letters out to owners of affected vehicles starting June 2. Land Rover technicians will examine the vehicle and make repairs if deemed necessary.
