Recall roundup: Jaguar XF image

The new Jaguar XF is being recalled because of a problem with the fuel pump which might shut down because of the electronic modules which control it.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a total of 13 units of the 2013 Jaguar XF will be affected by this recall and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers because of a problem which might cause the engine to stall. The NHTSA says that the electronic modules which control the fuel pump may shut down and this will stop the fuel pumping.

“The electronic modules which control the fuel pump may shut down, causing the fuel pump to stop pumping fuel. The resulting fuel starvation will cause the engine to stall. An engine stall without warning while driving may lead to a loss of motive power, a loss of power-assisted braking and a loss of power-assisted steering. Each of these conditions may increase the risk of a vehicle crash”

The affected vehicles have been produced between the 3rd of October and the 12th of October, 2012. The company’s dealers will install an additional wiring harness to the fuel pump. The recall will begin on the 18th of January. Meanwhile, owners can contact the carmaker at 1-800-452-4827.
