Jaguar Land Rover North America is recalling certain model year 2010-2011 XJ vehicles due to the potential for a software issue that could affect the proper functioning of the vehicle's air bags.

Approximately 4,925 XJ vehicles are impacted by this recall.

What's the problem?

The affected vehicles are equipped with Restraint Control Module (RCM) software that may not have been successfully updated during service. As a result, the default air bag calibration settings may be incorrect.

In the event of a crash, the incorrect calibration may not activate the air bag deployment as intended, increasing the risk of injury to vehicle occupants.

What Happens Next?

Jaguar will notify owners of the recalled XJ vehicles beginning in mid-August 2017. Local Jaguar dealers will then update the RCM with the latest software at no cost to vehicle owners.

To find out more about this recall, contact Jaguar customer service at (800) 452-4827—reference recall number H034.
