Specifically, the fuel outlet flange mounted on the fuel tank may crack, possibly resulting in a fuel leak. In the presence of an ignition source, such leakage increases the risk of a fire. Affected SUVs include model-year 2010-13 Range Rover Sports and model-year 2010-16 LR4s equipped with either Land Rover’s 3.0-liter V-6 or 5.0-liter V-8 engines.

To resolve the problem, dealers will replace the fuel outlet flange for free. Land Rover will begin notifying owners Oct. 8, but those with questions in the meantime can call the brand at 800-637-6837 or visit NHTSA’s website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
