Land Rover Defender (2020 – 2021)

Published on 17. 10. 2021

Problem description:

Due to an error in the assembly process, the occupant detection system (ODS) of the front passenger seat had not been installed on the seat cushion. As a result, no audible signal sounds and no warning symbol will appear on the instrument panel to warn the driver when the front passenger seat is occupied but the seat belt is not fastened. This may increase the risk of not having the seat belt fastened in the event of an accident, increasing the risk of injury.

The Land Rover Defender vehicles affected by this recall were manufactured between 10 July 2020 and 11 August 2021.

Land Rover recall code: N626
Affected models: Defender (LE), Discovery (LR)

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.
