Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) Australia has issued a recall for 2169 vehicles, affecting several models fitted with the company’s 3.0-litre TDV6 turbo-diesel engine over concerns it could cut out or not start.

Affected models and number of recalled vehicles are as follows:

2012-2013 model-year Jaguar XF (35 vehicles)

2012-2013 model-year Jaguar XJ (15 vehicles)

2012-2014 model-year Land Rover Discovery 4 (976 vehicles)

2012-2014 model-year Range Rover Sport (1081 vehicles)

2012-2014 model-year Range Rover (62 vehicles)

2014 Range Rover Sport 16

The British car maker reports that a faulty engine crank position sensor may cause the vehicle’s engine to not start, or cut out without warning. If the engine cuts out, the vehicle will lose brake power assistance and power steering assistance.

If the vehicle is fitted with an air suspension system, the ride height may also be reduced to the lowest position.

Each of these factors could pose a hazard to the driver and a potential accident risk to other road users.
