Jaguar is recalling 2,929 vehicles in the United States to check and fix issues that could cause vehicles to stall and for power windows to pinch. Around 940 model year 2013 XF 2-liter GTDi cars is being recalled by Jaguar Land Rover North America for possible stalling issues due to a hose clamp for the charge air cooler that could detach. In addition to possible stalling, steering and brake assistance could be lost, according to documents posted on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Web site, adding that Jaguar dealers will inspect the hose to ensure that it is in the correct position and tight.
Jaguar is also recalling 1,989 model year 2011-2014 XK convertible cars since their power windows might be unintentionally activated, pinching or injuring an arm or finger.
The switch in the overhead roof console may also activate the power- windows when the convertible roof is opening or closing, NHTSA said. The switch, however, does not move downward to close the windows, failing to meet federal safety standards.
According to NHTSA, Jaguar dealers will replace the overhead roof console at no cost to the consumers. A spokesman for Jaguar disclosed a slow-speed accident linked to the hose recall and none for the window recall, although no injuries were reported. Both recalls are expected to commence by September 27, 2013.
