Freelanders recalled

LAND Rover is recalling 10,500 of its Freelander models in the UK to check the rear suspension arms. This recall comes only weeks after Rover recalled 19,917 MGFs - all those sold since its introduction in 1995 - because of a seatbelt 'snagging' problem.

Following incidents with two customers' Freelanders - which did not result in an injury or accident - Land Rover engineers carried out an investigation and found the welding in the joints of the rear suspension did not meet the design specification. All vehicles built before June 1998 - more than 22,000 worldwide - will have suspension arms changed by Land Rover dealers at no charge to the customer.
