Jaguar Land Rover Ireland Limited recalls certain Land Rover Discovery (LR) / Defender (LE) passenger vehicles 

October 12, 2021

Jaguar Land Rover Ireland Limited is carrying out a voluntary recall of certain Land Rover Discovery (LR) / Defender (LE) passenger vehicles.

A concern has been identified where on the vehicles concerned, the occupant detection system (ODS) of the front passenger seat had not been installed on the seat cushion because of an error in certain data required for the manufacturing process. In the absence of ODS, the seats do not warn the driver of the vehicle when the passenger seatbelt has not been fastened. When the ODS is working, the driver receives a visual warning on the instrument panel and an audible signal. In the event of an accident, the risk of injury is greater if the front passenger is not wearing a seatbelt. Customers will note that when the front passenger seat is occupied but the seat belt is not fastened, no audible signal sounds, and no warning symbol appears on the instrument panel to warn the driver.

July 6, 2021

Motor Distributors Limited (Mercedes-Benz) is carrying out a voluntary recall on certain Mercedes-Benz EQC passenger vehicles.

A safety issue has been identified whereby in certain vehicles corrosion protection on the high voltage battery housing around the connections cannot be guaranteed to last for the whole lifetime of the vehicle. After the vehicle has been in use for a longer period of time, the high voltage battery housing could therefore corrode under certain specific environmental conditions. The sealing effect of the battery housing could then gradually be compromised, allowing moisture to penetrate the battery. This could lead to isolation failure, resulting in it being impossible to restart the vehicle once the engine has been switched off. In addition, if these circumstances were to arise, the risk of fire cannot be completely excluded.

In the event of the symptoms not being detected for a lengthy period of time, the bearing could become detached from the universal joint. The vehicle’s steerability would then be impaired, which could increase the risk of accidents.

A safety issue has been identified whereby that in certain vehicles the emergency call system may not behave in accordance with the specifications. A temporary fall in the on-board voltage levels resulting from an accident could mean that the location of the vehicle communicated when an emergency call is made does not correspond to the actual location of the vehicle. This could delay the arrival of emergency vehicles, thus potentially increasing the effects of the accident.

In relation to the above recall, vehicles affected by this will be processed by way of automated ‘over the air’ software update. Customers are not required to visit workshops as this update will be performed automatically.

A safety issue has been identified whereby in certain vehicles the communication module could be deactivated. If the communication module were deactivated, the eCall function would not be available. In the event of an accident it would then not be possible to establish a voice connection with the emergency call centre, either automatically or by activating the SOS button, nor would it be possible to transmit vehicle data. In this case, it would not be possible to direct emergency services to the vehicle, which could increase the impact of the accident. When pressing the SOS button to initiate an emergency call, the instrument cluster would indicate that the eCall function is not working.

There are 2 vehicles affected in the Republic of Ireland that were produced between 5 November 2015 to 30 October 2020.

A safety issue has been identified whereby in certain vehicles of its GLE and GLS series (BR 167), the condensed water drainage hose of the air-conditioning system may not be properly fitted. In this case condensed water from the air conditioning system could enter the passenger compartment of the vehicle. Condensed water would enter in the left or right foot well and could cause corrosion in the electrical components installed there and/or lead to short-circuits or leakage currents. This would increase the risk of fire from short circuits. Furthermore, the automatic emergency call (eCall) could fail, the vehicle could fail to unlock and/or start, and the engine emergency run could also be activated in an on-road vehicle. This would increase the risk of injury and accident.

The risk of fire in the event of an accident might thus not be reduced as intended.

Volvo Car Ireland Limited is carrying out a voluntary recall on certain XC60 passenger vehicles.

Volvo Car Ireland Limited has established that due to a factory manufacturing issue, potentially there is an insufficient, or missing, welding connection in the Hydraulic Unit of the Brake System.  This could lead to no active brake support functions, which will require drivers to use increased pedal force, with longer pedal travel, which will result in less deceleration than expected in an emergency hard-braking situation.

There is 1 vehicle affected in the Republic of Ireland that was produced between 14 June 2019 to 08 March 2021.
