Jaguar XF Recalled for Fuel Leak

Jaguar XF Recalled for Fuel Leak

Jaguar is recalling model year 2010 through 2011 XF models for a potential fuel leak.

The outlet flange on the fuel tank can become dry and cracked, which can lead to a leak. If the fuel finds its way to an ignition source, there is a potential for fire.

At this point the recall has only been announced by Transport Canada, where it affects 367 units. As is always the case, it will likely be announced by NHTSA for the U.S. in the coming days.

Jaguar will contact affected owners, and replace the flange free of charge.

UPDATE: The recall has now been announced by NHTSA and it affects 4,195 XF vehicles in the States. The recall is expected to begin on December 7, 2012. For more information, contact the NHTSA safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236.
