Number of Vehicles Affected: 68
Model Years From: 2005 to 2008 (MY2006 to MY2008 fitted with a diesel engine and a diesel particulate filter)
Whats wrong?: When these vehicles are driven under a unique driving pattern where the vehicle is predominantly used for short journey distances, under slow driving style and light throttle application, excessive soot and hydrocarbons may become trapped in the Diesel Particulate Filter (DFP).
The DPF on 2.7 Litre V6 diesel engine vehicles may exhibit smoke and/or fire from the underside of the vehicle, flames emanating from within the rear exhaust tailpipe or an orange glow from the underside of the vehicle. Heat from a fire within the DPF can radiate to the surrounding vehicle components and may lead to heating of the underside of the transmission tunnel and subsequent melting of the interior components and potential interior fire.
VIN Range: S Type. N50727 to N82818. XJ. H00155 to H17094.
