The Problem: A component within the occupant classification system electronic control unit may fail, resulting in the front passenger airbag being totally or partially disabled. In a crash necessitating airbags, deployment may not occur or may occur improperly, increasing the risk of injury to the front-seat passenger.
The Fix: Land Rover will begin notifying owners on Aug. 30, and dealers will update the restraint control module software for free.
What Owners Should Do: Owners can call Land Rover at 800-637-6837, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov for more info.
