Mahwah, NJ – September 6, 2021 – Jaguar Land Rover (NYSE:TTM) has announced a recall for 7,027 vehicles due to incorrect information in the owner’s regarding the third-row seats’ child restraint system. The information may lead to a child being “improperly secured,” increasing the risk of injury in a crash.
The Jaguar recall includes the following vehicles:
- 2020 Land Rover Defender
- 2021 Land Rover Defender
The owner manual of the recall vehicles incorrectly states that the third-row seats are equipped with the so-called lower anchors and tethers for children (LATCH) system “with top tethers.” The system allows parents to secure children with “straps and hooks..and anchor hardware” in place of seat belts.
This lack of correct information about these Land Rover child seat anchors may lead to the children being “improperly secured,” augmenting the risk of injury in the event of a crash.
There have been no reported injuries from this recall at this time and parents can still use seat belts to secure their children in these seats.

Owners will be mailed a supplement to insert into their current handbook free of charge on September 24, 2021.
