Recall Roundup: 2013-14 Jaguar XF and 2014 Range Rover
Jaguar Land Rover North America has announced recalls on the popular 2013-14 Jaguar XF and 2014 Range Rover models for a faulty air cooler hose clamp and turn signal malfunctions, respectively. The 2013-14 Jaguar XF 2.0-liter GTDi models manufactured between May 2013 and October 2013 may have hose clamps on the Charge Air Cooler (CAC) that are out of position or loose, which would let the hose detach. If this were to happen, the engine could stall and result in an accident. Added to that, steering and braking may also be lost. For the 2014 Range Rover manufactured from May 7, 2013 to October 10, 2013, the turn signal indicator may not flash or click at a double rate to notify the driver of a malfunction. Without this warning, other drivers will not be aware that the vehicle is turning, increasing the likelihood of an accident. Jaguar Land Rover will notify the owners of the affected vehicles. Jaguar will inspect all CAC hoses to make sure the clamp is secure and will correct the position if it's out of place. The recall will begin next month and owners may contact Jaguar by phone at (800) 452-4827 with recall number J034. Land Rover will update the software free of charge and the recall will begin late next month. Owners can use the number above with recall number P042 for more information. Source: NHTSA
