Thousands of Jaguar Land Rover vehicles are being recalled in the United States over problems with brakes and lights.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in America issued notices on Friday, with a total of 104,000 vehicles being recalled.

Jaguar Land Rover is a British company. All its vehicles are engineered and designed in the UK.

The company’s global headquarters are in Whitley in the West Midlands.

More than 70,000 Range Rovers are being recalled by Jaguar Land Rover North America due to fears that one or both front brake hoses on model 2006 to model 2012 cars could rupture, causing a loss of brake fluid.

It is understood dealers will replace the brake hoses for free on the cars affected.

Safety regulators said the brake hoses were first investigated towards the end of 2010 and the case was closed just over 18 months later due to a lack of reports of accidents or injuries.

A report of an accident and further ruptured brake hoses caused the probe to be re-opened in November last year.

Range Rover and Range Rover Sports from years 2013 and 2014 are are being recalled over concerns that brake vacuum hoses may not have been fitted properly.

Almost 5,000 Jaguar XK cars from 2012 to 2015 will also be recalled over fears their sidelights may switch off after five minutes.

The recalls will begin on March 13.
