  1. 2001 Land Rover Discovery II POWER TRAIN:DRIVELINE:DRIVESHAFT NHTSA Campaign #12E010000

    • Date Announced: MARCH 15, 2012
    • Vehicles Affected: 180

    Summary: Jaguar Land Rover North America, Inc. (Land Rover) is recalling certain rear driveshaft couplings, Land Rover branded part number tvf100010, manufactured from April 2011 through November 2011, sold for use as service parts for certain model year 1995-1999 discovery, 1999-2004 Discovery II, and 1995 range rover classic vehicles. Some of the rear driveshaft couplings may not have been manufactured to the required engineering design specifications and may exhibit the onset of joint separation, precluded by drive line vibration.

    Consequence: If this increased vibration warning sign is ignored, catastrophic failure of the drive coupling can occur. The driveshaft may detach from the vehicle while in motion resulting in loss of drive and loss of transmission park functionality, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash and/or injury.

    Actions: Land Rover will notify owners, and dealers will replace the affected rear driveshaft couplers free of charge. The safety recall began on May 4, 2012. Owners may contact Jaguar Land Rover North America at 1-201-818-8500. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #12E010000 »
