What are the Filter Defects and Clogging Issues in Land Rovers and Jaguars?
After receiving many complaints against these models, several investigations were conducted, and finally, a class-action lawsuit was filed involving some models that presented the vehicle stalling issues. The lawsuit alleges that specific models of Land Rovers, Range Rovers, and Jaguars are equipped with faulty diesel particular filters (DPF) prone to clogging and so, pose a severe safety hazard to drivers.
The DPF is an integral part of any vehicle responsible for capturing and storing exhaust soot to reduce emissions in diesel cars. They only have a finite capacity, which increases the occurrence risk of periodic clogging if not emptied or “burned off.” This is known as the “regeneration process,” which burns the excess soot and reduces the chances of any harmful exhaust emission.
The lawsuit involving the faulty DPF in Land Rovers, Range Rovers, and Jaguars states that the DPF found in these vehicles is prone to clogging even under normal circumstances. It also claims that there is an issue with the warning light, and it takes a while to activate and indicate a failed DPF. The defects present in the vehicles can cause the system’s sudden failure, limit vehicle performance, and lose power without any warning.
