Jaguar Land Rover Auto Trade (Shanghai) Co. Ltd. is to recall some imported "Discovery 3" SUVs because of brake and engine flaws.
It is estimated just over 1,000 of the diesel-fueled SUVs would be involved, said the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine .
The flaw in the "Discovery 3" SUVs, produced between Oct. 31, 2005 and June 26, 2009, leads to extended braking distances.
A smaller percentage of those, produced between June 2007 and May 2008, have a flaw in their high-pressure diesel pumps, which may lead to leakage, or even combustion in extreme cases.
The manufacturer will replace defective parts for free. Owners can go to their nearest maintenance center authorized by the manufacturer for check-up and replacement, or call 800-820-0187 for more information.
