Jaguar, Land Rover Announces Several Recalls
Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) is about to execute several recall small recall campaigns that will affect a wide range or models.
The smallest only affects two Range Rover Evoque crossovers from the 2014 model year. Those vehicles have a problem with the bolts connecting the right hand rear suspension link arm. Land Rover says it might have been damaged during production, leading to the link arm separating from the vehicle.
A total of 297 Jaguar covering the XK, XF and XJ models from the 2013 and 2014 model year are also the subject of a recall. In those vehicles, the toe link might separate from the rear sub-frame. If that happens, the cars will lose stability and the driver will not be able to control the direction the car is traveling in.
If you happen to have bought an XF sedan from the 2013 or 2014 model year, there’s a second chance for your car to be called back. The charge air cooler hose might detach in models equipped with the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. A total of 1,589 vehicles are included in that campaign. If the hose does become detached, the vehicles could stall.
JLR will notify affected owners and ask them to arrange a time with their dealer to have the necessary repairs performed. The procedures will be carried out free of charge to owners.
