Jaguar Land Rover North America is recalling certain model year 2013 Jaguar XJ vehicles manufactured from May 21, 2012 through July 10, 2012.

The generic software calibration installed on the vehicles' Restraints Control Module (RCM) may not meet the specification for proper operation of the Supplemental Restraint System (SRS). As such, these vehicles do not conform to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 208, 'Occupant Crash Protection.'

Vehicles that have the generic software may put the occupants at an increased risk of injury in the event of a crash.

Jaguar will notify owners of the recalled vehicles, and dealers will upload new software for the Restraints Control Module. This service will be provided free of charge.

For more information on this recall, contact Jaguar Customer Service toll-free at 855-524-8278. Jaguar's reference number for this recall is J040.
