BEIJING, Jan. 1 (Xinhua) -- Jaguar Land Rover will recall 68,828 vehicles in China due to an engine safety hazard, according to the national quality watchdog.

The recall was filed by Jaguar Land Rover China to the State Administration for Market Regulation.

Starting from April 5, the recall includes 42,000 Discovery 4 models produced between 2009 and 2016 and more than 20,000 Range Rover Sport models produced from 2009 to 2013.

Crankshaft bearings on the cars may experience earlier-than-expected wear and tear and even break under extreme conditions, causing engine stalling.

The automaker will check all affected vehicles and replace defective parts free of charge.
