Jaguar XF Recalled in the States Over Fuel Leak Fears

| |

U.S. owners of certain model year 2010-2012 XF sedans equipped with a 5.0-liter V8 gasoline engine will soon be receiving a letter from Jaguar informing them about a voluntary recall regarding their vehicles.

In a filing with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the British carmaker said that 4,195 XFs may have a fuel tank outlet flange that could crack, resulting in a leak and possible even a fire in the presence of a nearby ignition source.

In the same document, Jaguar said that it is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to the problem.

As is the case when the issue lies with the automaker, Jaguar dealers will replace the affected fuel outlet flanges free of charge, with the recall due to begin in the first week of December.
