Jul. 30, 2012 (China Knowledge) - Jaguar Land Rover, British based automaker owned by Tata Motors of India, recalls 2,229 units of Land Rover Freelander 2 model in China from July 27, due to faulty air conditioning refrigerants charging tube, said the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine
in a statement published on its website.
The quality watchdog said the affected Freelander 2 autos were manufactured between September 19 and April 20 this year with GTDi 2.0L engine.
The automaker said the friction between power steering tube and air conditioning refrigerants charging tube may cause the power steering oil to leak and even burn when the oil exposed to high temperature, adding that all affected Freelander 2 models will be fixed free.
In the first half of 2012, Jaguar Land Rover sold a total of 36,451 vehicles in China, nearly double those it sold in the same period of 2011, of which 32,177 units were Land Rover model.
