Jaguar recalling 6,745 XJ models for issue with wipers

2011 Jaguar XJ

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said that Jaguar is recalling 6,745 units of the 2012-2011 XJ sedan over defective windshield wipers.

The NHTSA said that vehicles affected have an issue with windshield wipers not being properly installed or synchronized. In certain XJ units, the wipers could lose synchronization and clash against each other, resulting in one or more wipers detaching.

Jaguar will start notifying owners on Dec. 13 and dealers will repair the securing nut to correct the problem if necessary. Owners can call Jaguar at 800-452-4827 or NHTSA’s vehicle safety hot line at 888-327-4236.
