Jaguar Land Rover recalls over 44,000 cars over 'excessive' CO2 emissions

Jaguar Land Rover has issued a recall of over 44,000 cars across Britain as they have been found to produce ‘excessive’ carbon dioxide (CO2 emissions).

The British car giant is recalling 10 different models across the Jaguar, Land Rover and Range Rover brand.

Affected models are those with either a 2.0-litre diesel or 2.0-litre petrol engine.

The recall includes vehicles such as the Land Rover Discovery, Range Rover Evoque and Jaguar F-Pace.

Some cars will need new tyres fitted, including the Range Rover Evoque and the repair could result in minor changes to the "overall vehicle experience," reports Which?.

In a statement, JLR said: “Affected vehicles are being rectified to ensure the correct CO2 performance is dependably achieved.

“The modifications made to affected vehicles will be made free of charge and every effort will be made to minimise inconvenience to the customer during the short time required for the work to be carried out.”

Owners of these vehicles will soon be contacted to bring their vehicle into a JLR authorised dealsherip to allow the repairs and software updates to be made.

This recall comes after it was reported that the Land Rover Discovery TD6 outperformed a number of other cars in new independent pollution tests, revealing it produced low NOx.
