Land Rover Range Rover (2020)

Published on 26. 10. 2020

Problem description:

The Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) crossover pipe may not have been manufactured according to the specification and can crack, allowing the escape of high-temperature exhaust gas.

Consequently, the escaped gas can come into contact with the plastic Variable Camshaft Timing cap and melt it, allowing liquid oil to be exposed to hot exhaust gas, increasing the risk of fire.

The Land Rover Range Rover and Range Rover Sport MY 2021 models affected by this recall were equipped with I6 3.0L 6-cylinder diesel engine and manufactured between 27 August and 29 September 2020.

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.
