Land Rover Defender (2014 – 2015)

Published on 26. 02. 2016

Problem description:

Excessively brittle bolts were installed in certain fittings used for the front and rear wheel hub assemblies. There is consequently a risk of the bolts breaking which could lead to other components being damaged. This could result in the front brake disc breaking or could undermine the stability of the vehicle during braking.

The recall concerns vehicles manufactured between 2014 and 2015.

What the owner should do?

If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, you should make immediate contact with a Land Rover dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.

If you wish to know more about eventual problems of a specific car (e.g. real mileage, potential traffic accidents damages, odometer rollback, repairs, etc.), then we suggest going to HPI-Check.

Check the vehicle's history

UK car-owners can easily make a pre-check by visiting DVLA website and entering the car registration number; it will also reveal the car’s current MOT status.
