Jaguar Land Rover recalls nearly 62K vehicles over air bags

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – Jaguar Land Rover North America is recalling 61,793 vehicles because the front, passenger-side air bag may be disabled if a lightweight adult sits in the seat.

The recall affects some Range Rovers from the 2013 through 2015 model years and Range Rover Sports from 2014 through 2015.

The company says it will start notifying owners in April, and they will be able to take their vehicles to dealers for a free software update.

Jaguar Land Rover says it has received no reports of accidents or injuries tied to the problem. It started looking into the issue last fall, after customers said a light indicating that the passenger air bag was off stayed illuminated in some cases when an adult sat in the seat.
