A potential fuel leak led Jaguar Land Rover to issue a recall involving over 110,000 specimens. Several models of the British group to be closely watched by this possible defection, from the 2010-2013 Range Rover Sport to the 2010-2016 Land Rover LR4, equipped with the 5.0-liter V8 and 3.0-liter V6 petrol engines of the British brand. Overall, a total of 55,555 Land Rover LR4 units and 56,191 Range Rover Sport units are involved.
According to Carscoops, an investigation by the British car group revealed that a fuel tank flange could be damaged and developed a crack. If this were to happen, it could trigger a fuel leak, which could also be the cause of a potential fire hazard. At present, Jaguar Land Rover has received 6 complaints from owners who have encountered this problem. And that’s not all, because it seems that the British group has identified another 200 complaints of the same nature, relating however to the Jaguar XF 2010-2012 model, the protagonist of a previous recall.
