The Australian Comsumer and Competitor Commission has just issued a recall for all normally aspirated 5.0-litre V8 Jaguar XF and Jaguar XK models, years ranging from 2010 to 2011. Only 81 cars are said to be affected.
The recall was issued because of a faulty fuel pump communication that may occur shortly after start-up, leading to stalling of the engine. Once restarted, the communication is regained and no further issues are said to result. If the engine does begin to stall, a loss of power assisted steering may also result causing very heavy steering.
Jaguar is recalling the vehicles on a national scale. Specific chassis numbers are:
Jaguar XF 2010 MY – R36913 to R59480
Jaguary XK 2010 and 2011 MY – B28268 to B39482
Owners of the cars will be contacted by Jaguar via mail, where they will be advised to visit their local dealer. At the dealer, technicians will upgrade the computer software on the car to rectify any possible petrol pump communication connection.
