When the manually adjustable front seats are moved as far forward as possible, for example, when moving the front seats forward rapidly to allow access to the second-row seats, the front seat slide end supports may become deformed over time. As a result, the seats could be positioned too far and the driver may not be able to touch the pedals, increasing the risk of an accident.
The Land Rover Defender vehicles affected by this recall were manufactured between 4 December 2020 and 9 April 2021.
