This week’s recalls:
– BMW X6/X6M – roof spoiler
– Land Rover Discovery – seatbelts
– Range Rover Evoque – belts + seats
– Mercedes A/GLC – coupling device
Five recalls of three manufacturers were issued for five models in the 2nd week of 2021 through the Rapex system. BMW, and Mercedes-Benz announced one recall each, while Land Rover issued three.
With the BMW X6 and X6M produced in June and July 2020, it is possible that the upper rear (roof) spoiler may not have been adequately attached during the production process. This may cause the spoiler to become detached, posing a risk to the following traffic.
Land Rover announced three recalls this week, all of which concerned its models’ seatbelts or seats. The seven-seater Discovery, produced in September and October 2020, may not have fixing for the 3rd-row seat belt anchorage installed to the specification. The Range Rover Evoque from the same period may have a problem with the seatbelt retractor on the 2nd-row seat. With the 2019 to 2021 Evoque, the laminate bonded seat material does not meet the burn rate requirements.
The bolts on the cross-member or the coupling device may not have been adequately tightened with Mercedes A-Class, and GLCs manufactured in May and June 2020. The cross-member could become detached from the vehicle whilst another vehicle is being towed.
See the table below for all the recalls from this week.
