Fiat Chrysler isn’t the only automaker facing problems when it comes to rollaways. So, too, is Jaguar Land Rover.
Investigators are looking into multiple rollaway reports involving the Jaguar XF and Land Rover Range Rover Evoque. Some involving injuries.
There are seven reports of rollaways after vehicles were put into park. They involve model year 2012-2014 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque SUVs and 2013 Jaguar XF sedans. The vehicles are equipped with a fully electronic rotary transmission switch to control driver gear selections.
According to NHTSA documents, four complaints reported rollaways while the driver door was open resulting in injuries requiring medical attention. One complaint reported being pinned against a garage wall. Drivers say the vehicles’ transmissions had been shifted to park, but parking brakes weren’t engaged at the time of the incidents.
A preliminary evaluation started in mid-December and could lead to a recall pending the results of the investigation.
