Land Rover recall involves air bag connector

Some Land Rover owners and lessees in eastern Tennessee may be receiving recall notices that involve an airbag connector. Supplemental Restraint System connectors in both the driver's and the front passenger's seat may become disconnected due to a lack of sufficient clearance within the connector housings. Should such a SRS connector become disconnected, the air bag cannot deploy in a collision, thereby increasing the risk of injury.

The manufacturer is believed to be recalling a total of 3,912 Land Rovers in the United States. The model years involved are 2013 and 2014. The proposed solution to the problem involves having a Land Rover dealer create added clearance between the SRS connector and its housing. It is believed that this will eliminate the type of contact between the housing and the connector that could possibly lead to disconnection. Land Rover says that it has begun the process of notifying owners and lessees of the recall involving this part of the air bag deployment system. The needed modification will be provided free of charge.

It is unknown whether failed airbag deployment has been a factor in any accident thus far. More information is available from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The recall campaign number is 13V607000. Land Rover's own recall reference number is P037.

A Land Rover driver or front row passenger that was in an accident in which an air bag did not deploy when it should have could seek redress in the courts. When personal injuries occur allegedly due to defective products, a lawsuit may provide for compensation for incurred medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages and other losses.
