Jaguar Land Rover Recalls About 36,000 SUVs Due To Defective Gearboxes

Jaguar Land Rover recalls more than 36,000 Range Rover Evoque SUVs from China market after it has been denounced for installing defective gearboxes. The company, criticized by its rivals Nissan and Volkswagen AG, has already offered its apologies via its blog.

In China, the incident is under the investigation. Regulators don’t exclude the possibility of a deliberate anti-competitive behaviour. The automaker is in a rather shaky position there – its sales rate has been significantly decreasing this year.

Jaguar Land Rover stated that in 36,451 Evoques produced in 2014-2015, issues with software had been detected. In particular, the cars’ owners complain of too noisy transmission, difficulties with shifting gears and selecting a drive after restart, etc.

Obviously, the automaker admits its fault. It promised to update gearbox software for free and prolong affected vehicles’ warranty period from three to seven years.
