DETROIT — Jaguar Land Rover is recalling about 65,000 SUVs in the US because the doors may not latch properly and could open while being driven.

The recall covers certain 2013 to 2016 Range Rover and 2014 to 2016 Range Rover Sport models.

The British automaker says in documents filed with US safety regulators that it traced the problem to a software glitch in the keyless entry system. The company began looking into the problem in October after getting customer complaints. No crashes or injuries have been reported.

Dealers will update the keyless entry software at no cost to owners. The recall is expected to begin Aug. 7.
