Jaguar Land Rover North America is recalling 13,500 2017-model year Land Rover Discovery Sport vehicles and 2016- to 2017-MY Range Rover and Range Rover Sport vehicles because of faulty seat belt pretensioners, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

“If the front seat seatbelt pretensioners do not function properly, the seat occupants may not be adequately restrained in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury,” the federal agency said on its website.

Land Rover will inspect the front seat belt assemblies, replacing them as necessary. There will be no charge for this service.

The recall is expected to begin Feb. 20. Vehicle owners can reach Land Rover customer service at (800) 637-6837. Land Rover’s number for this recall is P095.
