2013_land-rover_range-rover-sport[1]Owners of 2013 and 2014 model year Range Rover SUVs in the U.S. will soon have to return their vehicles to dealers for repairs.

Tata Motors‘ (TTM[2]) Jaguar Range Rover says that a recall for some Range Rover SUVs will commence on Jan. 17. The Range Rover SUVs have defective connectors in their driver and passenger side airbag systems, Reuters notes.

Owners of Range Rover SUVs included in the recall will be alerted by mail. The recall affects 3,912 Range Rovers sold in the U.S.

Airbag systems affected by the problem may not deploy properly in the even of a collision. Dealers will adjust the connector to ensure that it remains connected.

Range Rover says that accidents or injuries have been linked to the problem.

TTM stock climbed modestly in Friday morning trading, despite news of the recall. TTM stock has risen about 30% since September.
