Jaguar Land Rover is recalling 44,000 cars in the UK over greenhouse gas emissions, the car maker has said.
The Vehicle Certification Agency found ten models were emitting more of the carbon dioxide gas than they had been certified to emit. Jaguar Land Rover then informed the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency, which handles recalls, of the findings.
Recalls of cars to fix safety defects happen fairly often, but full product recalls because of exhaust emissions are rare. It is thought to be the first carbon dioxide-related recall for Jaguar Land Rover.
