Jaguar Land Rover North America has announced a recall for a sedan with potentially compromised steering.

The manufacturer is recalling certain model year 2013-2015 Jaguar XF vehicles equipped with 2.0L GTDi engines. The retaining bolt for the Front End Auxiliary Drive (FEAD) idler pulley on the engine may fail, resulting in a loss of power steering assist.

A loss of power steering assist may increase the risk of a crash.

Nearly 7,000 vehicles are potentially affected.

Jaguar will notify owners, and dealers will replace the FEAD pulley assembly, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin May 2, 2016.

Owners with questions about this recall can contact Jaguar customer service at (800) 452-4827.
