Jaguar Land Rover issues recall over emissions issue

Land Rover

A new report by industry journal, Automotive News Europe, the European Union's Safety Gate Rapex claims JLR vehicles with 2.0-litre engines (both petrol and diesel) may emit "excessive levels of Carbon dioxide and may not conform with the certified condition". Additionally, some of the affected vehicles will require physical repairs while others will just need software updates.

JLR also declared that it shall be contacting the owners of the affected vehicles in order to arrange free-of-charge repairs.

The problem was first identified by the UK's Vehicle Certification Authority, which discovered a discrepancy between the stated Carbon dioxide emissions and the actual Carbon dioxide output of the affected cars during conformity testing. It is now working with the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA), which is following up on VCA's work, to "ensure that the recall is administered and managed in line with the recall procedures to ensure the vehicles are rectified as soon as possible", the agency said.

These include Land Rover's Discovery, Discovery Sport, Range Rover Sport, Evoque and Velar models, as well as examples of Jaguar's E-Pace, F-Pace, F-Type, XE and XF. Any recall work done on your auto will be free of charge.
