Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) Australia has issued a recall for 2169 vehicles, affecting several models fitted with the company’s 3.0-litre TDV6 turbo-diesel engine over concerns it could cut out or not start.
Affected models and number of recalled vehicles are as follows:
2012-2013 model-year Jaguar XF (35 vehicles)
2012-2013 model-year Jaguar XJ (15 vehicles)
2012-2014 model-year Land Rover Discovery 4 (976 vehicles)
2012-2014 model-year Range Rover Sport (1081 vehicles)
2012-2014 model-year Range Rover (62 vehicles)
The British car maker reports that a faulty engine crank position sensor may cause the vehicle’s engine to not start, or cut out without warning. If the engine cuts out, the vehicle will lose brake power assistance and power steering assistance.
If the vehicle is fitted with an air suspension system, the ride height may also be reduced to the lowest position.
Each of these factors could pose a hazard to the driver and a potential accident risk to other road users.
Affected Jaguar vehicles were built between 1 June 2012 and 31 October 2012. VIN ranges are listed below:
Jaguar XF: SAJAC0627CNS53474 to SAJAA0227DNS67338
Jaguar XJ: SAJAC1627CNV38178 to SAJAC122XDNV43625
Discovery 4: SALLAAAG5CA626785 to SALLAAAM6DA653082
Range Rover Sport: SALLSAAG6CA752903 to SALLSAAF4DA787400
Range Rover: SALGA2KE6EA000013 to SALGA2HF4DA124233
Owners of the recalled Jaguar Land Rover models will be notified by their respective manufacturers and instructed to present their vehicle to their local Jaguar or Land Rover dealership, who will replace the engine’s crank position sensor.
