JLR is recalling 36,451 Evoques from 2014 and 2015 in China to fix their gearboxes, according to Reuters.

The company is also extending the transmission's warranty for affected owners there to seven years from the time of purchase or about 149,000 miles, whichever is first.
The CCTV investigation also went after Nissan, Volkswagen and Mercedes-Benz dealers for allegedly overcharging for parts and repairs.
