Jaguar Recalls XF Vehicles That Could Leak Fuel, Possibly Leading to Fire
Fuel lines could chafe and leak, posing a fire hazard in the presence of an ignition source
Jaguar Land Rover North America has announced a recall affecting more than 5,000 model year 2013-2015 Jaguar XF vehicles equipped with 2.0L GTDi engines.
The affected vehicles may have insufficient clearance between the underfloor fuel delivery lines and the under shield and body, allowing the fuel lines to chafe. This could possibly result in a fuel leak.
A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source can increase the risk of a vehicle fire.
All of the Jaguar XF vehicles included in this recall were manufactured from May 22, 2013 to June 15, 2015.
Jaguar will notify owners of the recalled vehicles, and dealers will inspect the fuel line for abrasions, replacing it as necessary and installing additional clips. All repairs related to this recall will be performed free of charge to vehicle owners.
This recall is expected to begin on December 19, 2016. For further information, owners can contact Jaguar customer service at (800) 452-4827.
