Jaguar Land Rover is one of several carmakers we are taking investigative action against over allegations of emissions irregularities. It has been alleged that carmakers including Mercedes, Nissan & Renault and Jaguar Land Rover may not be conforming to emissions regulations and could, therefore, be in breach of the law. If you own or lease, or have owned or leased, a potentially affected vehicle, you could be eligible to make a Jaguar Land Rover emissions claim.
It is understood that tens of thousands of vehicles might be affected by the alleged Jaguar Land Rover emissions issues. In the wake of the Volkswagen “dieselgate” scandal of 2015, which led to the High Court ruling that Volkswagen had installed illegal defeat device technology in vehicles in the UK, we are concerned that other carmakers may be guilty of wrongdoing as well.

The Jaguar Land Rover emissions issues
Emissions issues have typically involved NOx emissions for diesel vehicles, but this has not always been the case across the board.
Issued in early 2019, one Jaguar Land Rover Emissions recall is said to affect 44,535 vehicles after the Vehicle Certification Agency reportedly found evidence of excessive carbon dioxide (CO2) output in certain models. The issue was reportedly identified during routine regulatory testing by the regulator. In response, Jaguar Land Rover engaged in a voluntary recall of various Land Rover, Range Rover and Jaguar models which may not conform to the regulatory standards. The vehicles are dated in the 2016-2019 period.
Jaguar Land Rover stated that owners will be contacted to arrange for work to be carried out, which we understand will be done so by authorised dealers and garages.
There are growing concerns about the potential adverse impact that some modifications could have on vehicle performance when it relates to emissions. It appears that some carmakers might have proved reluctant to compromise on emissions output at the expense of engine performance, so it follows that reducing the CO2 output of Jaguar Land Rover vehicles may weaken their performance. Those affected by the recall could be in a highly uncertain position.
Our emissions group actions
We believe that potentially affected owners have an opportunity to assert their consumer rights if the Jaguar Land Rover emissions allegations are found to be true. This could be based on the idea that you purchased your vehicle on the basis that it was safe and legal to drive, when in fact the emissions output may have been reaching levels that did not comply with the law. In addition, if vehicle performance is worsened following any software updates or work carried out, you may be able to claim compensation for any adverse impact on a vehicle also.
Jaguar Land Rover emissions claims could be brought on the basis that the manufacturer or the dealership has breached the contract of sale. If defeat devices are found to have been used to cheat emissions tests, the claim may involve breaches of the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations (CPUT). This could mean that compensation pay-outs could fall between 25% to 100% of the price paid for your vehicle.
