Recalls: Jaguar and NHTSA recall 2011-2014 XK convertibles and 2013 XF diesel over unrelated issues

Jaguar and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration have issued two separate recalls for unrelated issues surrounding 2011-2014 Jaguar XK convertibles and 2013 XF 2.0L GTDi turbodiesel sedans in the North American market.

Firstly, the XJ is being recalled for an improperly designed switch involving the automatic actions of the windows when the roof is operated. Convertibles made between October 1, 2010 through August 1, 2013 are affected.

Alternatively, the 2013 XF 2.0L GTDi is being recalled over a loose hose clamp for the intercooler, which could detach and cause the engine to stall.

Jaguar will begin notifying owners of affected cars for both recalls and will remedy the issue for free.

Manufacturer: Jaguar Land Rover North America, LLC

SUMMARY:
Jaguar Land Rover North America, LLC (Jaguar) is recalling certain model year 2011-2014 XK convertible vehicles manufactured October 1, 2010, through August 1, 2013. The switch in the overhead roof console also activates the power operated windows when the convertible roof is opening or closing. The switch does not move downward to close the windows. Therefore, these vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 118, “Power-Operated Window, Partition, and Roof Panel Systems.”

CONSEQUENCE:
The power windows may inadvertently be activated and pinch or injure an arm or finger.

REMEDY:
Jaguar will notify owners, and dealers will replace the overhead roof console, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin by September 27, 2013. Owners may contact Jaguar at 1-800-452-4827. Jaguar’s recall number is J030.

NOTES:
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
