Recall 15V042000

Power Brake Assist Faliure

Recall Details

A vacuum hose may be improperly routed and develop a leak, causing power brake assist failure. Dealers will inspect the brake vacuum hose and route it correctly as necessary, and will replace hoses that show signs of damage free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The power brake system may lose braking assistance, due to a hole wearing into a vacuum hose. This can result in extra braking effort, and could possibly result in an accident.

What Should You Do?

Recalls on your Land Rover must be performed by a Land Rover dealership. Land Rover will notify owners of affected vehicles in March, 2015. If you do not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Land Rover dealerships. They will also check for any other uncompleted recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with. The Land Rover recall number is P052.
