Australia: JLR recalls more than 5,000 vehicles image

Jaguar Land Rover has recently announced a recall for more than 5, 000 vehicles in Australia, in order to correct two different defects.

According to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), more than 5,000 cars will be affected by these two recalls in Australia and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers. The first problem refers to fuel leaking from the engine mounted injector spill rail spigot to spill return pipe connector joint. If this happens, there is the possibility of diesel leaking onto the exhaust system or turbocharger, increasing the risk of a fire and injury.

This recall affects the 2012 – 2013 model year Land Rover / Range Rover vehicles and the 2012 – 2014 model year Jaguar cars, powered by the 2.2 liter four-cylinder diesel engine. The second recall will affect the 2013 Jaguar XF, equipped with the 2.0 liter four-cylinder petrol engine. The carmaker says that the charge air cooler hose may detach from the charge air cooler resonator and if this happens the driver may hear a loud pop noise and the engine may cut out, posing a danger for road users. Owners of these vehicles will be notified by JLR through mail.
