The British based automaker Jaguar has recently announced two separate recalls for the XK and XF, for the CAC and switch in the overhead roof console, respectively.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, almost 3,000 units of the Jaguar XF sedan will be affected by this recall and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers because of a hose clamp for the CAC (Charge Air Cooler) hose may be out of position. If this will detach and become loose, the engine may stall, increasing the risk of a crash, as a stalled engine means the loss of brake assistance and steering.
The company’s dealers will inspect the CAC hose in the affected cars in order to make sure that it’s in the right position, at no charge for the owners. The models in question have been produced between July 2012 and May 2013 and they have been sold as the 2.0L GTDi. The second recall affects the XK models, from the 2011 to the 2014 model years, because of a switch in the overhead roof console, which is activating the power operated windows when the roof is opening or closing. This can accidentally pinch or injure a finger or an arm. A total of 1,989 units of the XK will be affected by this recall.
