What is a recall?
When a manufacturer or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) determines that a vehicle creates an unreasonable risk to safety or fails to meet minimum safety standards, the manufacturer is required to fix that vehicle at no cost to the owner. That can be done by repairing it, replacing it, offering a refund (for equipment) or, in rare cases, repurchasing the car.

What should I do if my vehicle is included in this recall?
If your vehicle is included in this recall, it is very important that you get it fixed as soon as possible given the potential danger to you and your passengers if it is not addressed. You should receive a separate letter in the mail from the vehicle manufacturer, notifying you of the recall and explaining when the remedy will be available, whom to contact to repair your vehicle, and to remind you that the repair will be done at no charge to you. If you believe your vehicle is included in the recall, but you do not receive a letter in the mail from the vehicle manufacturer, please call NHTSA's Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236, or contact your vehicle manufacturer or dealership.

Thank you for your attention to this important safety matter and for your commitment to helping save lives on America's roadways.

Interesting. I wonder if they are going to fix it for real this time. My 2019 JLU had a M/T and went in for one of the earlier recalls. It consisted of putting a sheath around the hydraulic line.
My JT has an auto. Thank goodness.

So they finally admit they have a problem that they have known about for years, and yet they still do not have a remedy. I have already replaced the clutch in my wife’s JLR with a Centerforce. I do not expect to get reimbursed anything, but it would be nice.

How they can screw up something so simple and proven boggles my mind.

3rd ones the charm? I only wanted a manual until the 1st recall then ended up buying an auto after seeing they weren't addressing the actual root of the problem.

Lol, they continued to build the 2023 the same way without addressing the potential defects? I wonder if it actually is just the clutch? This should be fun, I'll probably be receiving the letter shortly.

I still have not gone in for my 1st clutch recall. When they actually have some upgraded parts I'll take it in for all 3. I'm actually glad to see this, maybe 3rd times a charm.

My VIN looks clean as of right now. ??

5500 on my 2022 currently. Will do centerforce after a year or two when I don’t care as much about the warranty.

Clutches are a replacement item for manual transmissions. They do not effect warranty!

So I'm assuming replacing the clutch with an aftermarket one will not fix it?

I'm guessing this is too new for it to have our VINs inputted. Mine still shows the other 2 but not this newest one.

The design of the stock clutch is the problem, not a manufacturing defect!

Replacing the clutch with aftermarket certainly solved my overheating issues.
