The SUVs from model years 2013 and 2014 are
being recalled because a connector in the airbag system may
become disconnected, causing airbags on the driver and passenger
sides not to function and increasing the risk of injury in an
accident, according to documents filed this week with the U.S.
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
There have been no reports of accidents or injuries related to
the issue, according to the NHTSA documents.
Jaguar Land Rover, which is owned India's Tata Motors, will
notify owners and dealers will modify the area around the
connector to prevent it from becoming disconnected, according to
the NHTSA documents. The recall is expected to begin on Jan.
