JLR recall

Just came across this in the news which may impact on some members cars

Link below
https://www.which.co.uk/news/2019/03/jagua...emissions/

Article :

Jaguar and Land Rover cars recalled for excessive CO2 emissions
Jaguar Land Rover is recalling more than 44,000 cars, made between 2016 and 2019, because they are producing excessive carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.
Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) is recalling 10 different models of car with either a 2.0-litre diesel or 2.0-litre petrol engine. This is after routine testing found these cars ‘do not consistently achieve the certified levels’ of CO2.
A full list of the cars affected can be found below, but include the Land Rover Discovery, Land Rover Discovery Sport, Range Rover Evoque, Jaguar XE and Jaguar F-Pace, among others.
Owners of these cars will soon be contacted and asked to bring their car into a JLR authorised repairer to receive repairs and software updates.
JLR says owners may experience minor changes to the ‘overall vehicle experience’, and that certain 2016-2017 Range Rover Evoque models will need new tyres fitted.
The recall is not yet on the DVSA database, but will be added.
See how Jaguar cars, including the new all-electric I-Pace, get on in our independent car reviews.
Which Jaguar Land Rover cars are being recalled?
Ten models are being recalled. Here is the full list:
What should affected owners do?
If you own an affected car, you should be contacted shortly. You will be asked to go to an authorised garage/dealership so the repairs and software update can be carried out. The fix will be free.
If you’re worried about the recall, you could also try contacting Jaguar Land Rover customer services on:
Jaguar: 0345 303 2303
Land Rover: 0370 5000 500
Make sure you have your car’s VIN to hand.
What is a VIN?
A VIN is a unique 17 digit vehicle identification number (VIN), given to each car.
You can usually find your car’s VIN by standing outside of the car, and looking at where the windscreen meets the dashboard ion the driver’s side. It may also be on the inside of the driver’s door.
If you can’t find it in the car, try your insurance policy or your vehicle registration document.
How will my car be affected?
We asked Jaguar Land Rover if owners would experience a difference in performance. JLR responded by saying owners may experience minor changes to the ‘overall vehicle experience’.
JLR also said that petrol owners may notice the stop/start operating at lower vehicle temperatures.
Additionally, certain 2016 and 2017 Range Rover Evoque models will also need new tyres fitted. We have asked for more details about this.
Why is CO2 important?
CO2 is a greenhouse gas, and is directly linked to fuel consumption.
One of the appeals of diesel cars is that diesel is a lower carbon fuel than petrol. Previously that meant lower car tax bills, or even being exempt from car tax entirely.
Today the amount of CO2 produced by a car only affects the car tax rate in its first year, then a standard rate kicks in.
Find out more in our car tax guide.
What does the DVSA say?
We contacted the government safety body, the DVSA. Neil Barlow, DVSA Head of Vehicle Engineering, said:
‘DVSA’s priority is to protect everyone from unsafe drivers and vehicles. This includes vehicles that are damaging our environment.
‘Where new vehicles sold for use on British roads don’t conform to emissions standards, DVSA will work with other government agencies and manufacturers to ensure the vehicles are fixed as quickly as possible.’
What are the CO2 regulations and penalties?
While there is technically no limit to how much CO2 a single car can emit, car manufacturers need to adhere to EU CO2 limits. Across a manufacturer’s entire fleet of cars, the average CO2 figure must equal 130g/km or less.
As it’s the average that matters, manufacturers are allowed to produce cars that produce CO2 in excess of 130g/km, as long as they have another vehicle with low CO2 levels to balance it out.
The limits will soon lower to 95g/km. By 2020, 95% of manufacturer’s cars will need to comply with this average, and 100% by 2021.
From 2019, if the limit is exceeded by a manufacturer, it will have to pay €95 for every single g/km of excessive CO2, for every car registered.
We reveal the most polluting cars, according to our tough tests. [/i]

Surprisingly I did a search on “recall” and came up blank. Gremlins or auto spell correct. Laughing
