Jaguar Land Rover has found that the front crash sensors on some 2022 Range Rovers did not meet the requirements, which could lead to serious consequences. As a result, the automaker has announced the recall of 19 cars in the US manufactured from 2 to 22 February this year. It has been found that 100 percent of these vehicles suffer from this problem if both front impact sensors can weaken over time, resulting in active restraint systems not working properly.

If the front impact sensors are weakened, there is a risk that the airbags may trip for no apparent reason. This carries the risk of injury and may have additional consequences for the driver’s ability to drive the vehicle, which could potentially lead to another accident in which an airbag has already been used.
