Jaguar Land Rover has issued a recall of two models, the 2012 Range Rover Evoque and the 2012 Land Rover LR2 over a brake issue. Up to 70 vehicles could be affected, all built on a single day, June 11, 2012. The retaining bolts on the rear calipers of those vehicles could have been torqued incorrectly, with the potential consequence that the brake caliper could detach and cause a loss of braking or damage to the wheel while driving.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says that a recall is due to begin no later than January 18, 2013. At that time owners can take their vehicles to their dealers to have the bolts tightened properly if necessary. The NHTSA bulletin below has more information.

Report Date: December 16, 2012 at 04:55 AM
NHTSA Campaign ID number: 12V563000

Vehicle Model Year(s) Make / Model: 2012 LAND ROVER EVOQUE, 2012 LAND ROVER LR2
Manufacturer: Jaguar Land Rover North America, LLC
Report Receipt Date: DEC 06, 2012
Component: SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC:FOUNDATION COMPONENTS:DISC:CALIPER
Potential Number of Units Affected: 70

Summary:
Jaguar Land Rover is recalling certain model year 2012 LR2 and Range Rover Evoque vehicles manufactured on June 11, 2012. The rear brake caliper retaining bolts may be insufficiently torqued.

Consequence:
Insufficiently torqued brake caliper bolts may result in the brake caliper detaching. A detached brake caliper may lead to a loss of brake function. Additonally, the caliper may strike a wheel resulting in the sudden deflation of a tire. Either situation may increase the risk of a vehicle crash.

Remedy:
Jaguar Land Rover will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and tighten the rear brake caliper retaining bolts, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on, or before, January 18, 2013. Owners may contact Jaguar Land Rover at 1-800-452-4827.

Notes:
Land Rover's campaign recall number is P029. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
