Land Rover Freelander 2 diesel – fire may occur

Built from 19/05/2008 – 02/06/2008

A fault with the heating circuit on Freelander models built over this short period of time may result in short circuit.

The recall only affects cars built over a period of approximately two weeks in 2008, so most Freelander owners can rest easy.
