Recall 15V039000

Brake Fluid Leak From Front Brakes

Recall Details

These vehicles are being recalled because their front brake lines (hoses) may rupture causing loss of brake fluid and braking control. Loss of front braking in a vehicle reduces the ability to stop suddenly, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the front brake lines and replace both as necessary.

Our Quick Take

One or both flexible front brake lines can fail. This would result in reduced braking ability due to the brake fluid loss.

What Should You Do?

If you experience a soft brake pedal feel, have difficulty braking, or you don't receive notification in a timely manner and believe you should have please contact your dealer for further instruction. They may ask for your vehicle identification number (VIN), so please have it handy when you call. Land Rover's number for this recall is P054.
