Dealers were instructed to replace the defective airbags.
In December 2016, certain model year 2016-2017 Range Rover and Range Rover Sport vehicles were recalled. The vehicles were equipped with seatbelt pretensioners that may not function properly in an accident, leaving occupants inadequately restrained and at an increased risk of injury. Land Rover agreed to inspect and replace the front seatbelt assembly.

In October 2015, certain model-year 2014 Range Rover and Range Rover Sport SUVs were recalled because the second-row seatback may not latch properly.
