Jaguar Land Rover North America is recalling certain model year 2013-2014 Jaguar XF vehicles that were manufactured from October 18, 2012 through February 25, 2014.

The right-hand rear brake pipe on the recalled XF vehicles may wear against a bracket located on the rear sub frame. This condition may cause the brake pipe to wear through and leak brake fluid.

Leaking brake fluid can lengthen braking distance and increase the risk of a vehicle crash.

Jaguar will notify owners of the affected XF vehicles, and Jaguar dealers will inspect the rear brake pipe for signs of wear, manipulate the bracket on the rear sub frame, and inspect and replace the rear brake pipes if wear is visible. All service and repairs related to this recall will be performed free of charge.

To find out more about this recall, contact Jaguar Customer Service toll-free at 855-524-8278. Jaguar's reference number for this recall is J036.
