Recall: 2013 Jaguar XF and 2011-2014 Jaguar XK

By | August 16, 2013
Jaguar will recall select Jaguar XF and XK models for issues that may cause the vehicle to stall, as well as power windows that may pinch. The automaker is recalling 940 2013 XF 2.0-liter GTDi vehicles for possible stalling, and 1,989 2011-2014 XK convertible models for window pinching. For the 2013 Jaguar XF, the hose clamp for the charge air cooler may detach, according to documents that were posted on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's website. If the hose clamp were to detach, the vehicle may stall, and steering and brake assistance could be affected as well. There has only been one accident reported in relation to this issue. The XK convertible may have power windows that are inadvertently activated, causing an arm or finger to get pinched when the window rolls up. There is also a switch in the overhead roof console that can activate the operated power windows when the top is being put up or down. This switch doesn't conform to federal safety standards as it doesn't move downward to close the windows. Recalls for both vehicles is expected to start on September 27. Jaguar dealers will inspect both vehicles, making sure the hose clamp in the XF is positioned correctly and holds tight, and the overhead roof console on the XK will be replaced. All inspections and repairs will be at no cost to the owner. Source: Automotive News
