Almost 62,000 Range Rover models are being recalled by Land Rover following an investigation from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The issue relates to the occupant classification system of the Range Rover and a potential problem with it. It is suggested that the system may be unable to recognise whether a small adult or if a child is sitting in the front passenger seat. Consequently, the airbag could be disabled even if it should be turned on for a small adult.
The cars affected are 2014-2015 Range Rover Sport models built from June 16, 2013 through to February 5 of 2015 as well as 2013-2015 Range Rovers made between August 23, 2012 and February 5 of this year.
To fix the issue, Land Rover will notify impacted owners and update the OCS software free of charge. The recall is pinned to commence on April 17 this year.
