Jaguar recalls XF sedan for possible stalling issue

2013 Jaguar XF-R

In the second Jaguar recall this week, the Indian-owned (Tata) British automaker is recalling their entry-level luxury sedan, the 2013 XF. Approximately 940 vehicles will be involved in the recall, which were produced from July 2012 through May 2013. The vehicles affected come equipped with the turbocharged 2.0 four-cylinder engine, which is new to the mid-sized sedan’s lineup. Jaguar also a six-cylinder engine, in addition to the naturally aspirated and supercharged V8s, to better compete with the likes of Audi, BMW, and Mercedes-Benz, as well as to offer more fuel-efficient options.

The issue involves the air cooler hose, which could detach. If this were to occur, it would result in a loss of power in the steering, as well as the possibility of the vehicle stalling. This could increase the risk of the vehicle being involved in an accident.

Like the other Jaguar recall that was announced earlier this week, this campaign will begin on September 27 of this year. Like most recalls, owners will be instructed to take their vehicle back to the dealership, where the issue will be repaired at no cost. To determine if a vehicle is affected by this recall, or to schedule a service appointment, one can contact their local Jaguar dealership.
