Land Rover recalls 2012 Evoque & LR2 for brake issue

Land Rover has issued a recall of two models, the 2012 Range Rover Evoque and the 2012 Land Rover LR2, over a brake issue. Both models share a similar platform.

In this U.S. recall, up to 70 vehicles could be affected, all built on a single day, June 11, 2012. The retaining bolts on the rear calipers of those vehicles could have been torqued incorrectly, with the potential consequence that the brake caliper could detach and cause a loss of braking or damage to the wheel while driving.

U.S. owners of affected cars can go to the dealer and have the bolts tightened properly if necessary. It is unknown if any GCC-spec cars are affected.

    In other words, It could cause the vehicle to loose control and end in an crash! It is a concern of the highest safety! All owners of these vehicles should not drive it, to be towed away to the dealer.
