NHTSA looks into possible Jaguar and Land Rover vehicle defect

Wednesday, January 4th, 2017 at 3:59 pm    

An investigation was recently opened by the federal auto safety regulations offices regarding Jaguar Land Rover vehicles after several reports of the vehicles suddenly moving while in “park”, some including injured parties, were received by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), an article of Tech Times reported on January 3.

Reports said the NHTSA is investigating some previous models of Jaguar sedans and Land Rover SUVs that could roll away, even if the driver had shifted the transmission to “park” mode. The NHTSA’s Office of Defects Investigation has been notified of seven rollaway incidents, four of which have resulted in personal injuries. The investigation was opened for federal authorities and the car manufacturer to figure out if a recall is needed to address the issue.
