Jaguar Land Rover North America is recalling 22,657 2015 model-year Land Rover Discovery Sport and 2014-2015 Range Rover Evoque SUVs because the transmission may unexpectedly shift to neutral, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The recall covers Discovery Sport vehicles manufactured from Sept. 17, 2014, through Nov. 3, 2014, along with Evoque vehicles manufactured from July 15, 2013, through July 1, 2015.

In these compact luxury SUVs, the transmission sensor clusters may have insufficient crimps in the transmission wire harness, NHTSA said.

Land Rover dealers will inspect the automatic transmission serial number and, if required, update the transmission software to resolve the issue. There will be no charge for this service.

The recall is expected to begin Oct. 14. Vehicle owners can reach Land Rover customer service at (800) 637-6837. Land Rover’s number for this recall is P091.
