In an echo of eras past, Jaguar is recalling their XF sedan and XK coupe for a faulty fuel pump that may cause the engine to unexpectedly die.
The problem occurs only on cars with the 5.0L V8, and is caused by the fuel pump not activating due to the fuel pump relay not properly coming on after the vehicle starts up. Jaguar will begin remedying the problem on August 30, 2010. About 5,000 Jaguars are affected.
For owners of Jaguars from the 1960s, this kind of glitch would be chocked up as another daily annoyance that comes with owning a Jag-you-are, but the British luxury brand is looking to gain a solid foothold in the fickle premium car market, and this recall is not the path they want to go down yet again.
