Jaguar Land Rover to recall 11,852 vehicles in China

Article by Anita Panait, on August 15, 2013

Jaguar Land Rover is recalling 11,852 vehicles in China due to likely engine and oil leakage issues, the country’s General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ) said on its Web site. The recall will cover 3,196 Jaguar-XF models built between July 2012 and May 2013, and XJs produced between March 2012 and May 2013 due to engine problems; and 8,656 Land Rover Freelanders and Range Rover Auroras built between January 2012 and June 2013 due to possible oil leakage, according to AQSIQ.

Jaguar Land Rover remarked that its technical field reporting team was “made aware of a limited number of incidents involving fuel leaks from the affected engine." The carmaker said that after “a thorough and detailed engineering investigation,” it has decided to voluntarily recall all potentially affected vehicles.

The announcement of Jaguar Land Rover’s recall came a week after BMW Brilliance Automotive disclosed that it would recall 143,215 vehicles in China. Official news agency Xinhua reported in July that foreign carmakers were gaining excessive profits from imported luxury cars and should undergo an anti-trust investigation. China is currently the largest vehicle market in the world and is poised to top the United States as the biggest consumer of premium vehicles, with expected sales of 2.7 million luxury unit annually by 2020.
