Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) Australia has recalled 468 cars across the XE, XF, F-Type, F-Pace and E-Pace lines, over concerns their 2.0L engines might fall foul of emissions regulations.

"Jaguar Land Rover is conducting a voluntary recall following the identification of CO2 performance variability with certain 2016-2019 MY Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles fitted with 2.0L diesel or petrol engines," said James Scrimshaw, PR manager for JLR Australia.

Some cars will require hardware updates and software tweaks, according to Scrimshaw, others just a change of oil. JLR hasn't confirmed any power output changes for cars after the fix.

"Affected vehicles do not consistently achieve the expected levels of CO2 emissions during the course of Conformity of Production (CoP) testing and as such are being rectified to ensure the correct CO2 performance is dependably achieved," he continued, and confirmed the non-compliant spec is no longer in production.

Some involve as little as an change of oil to ensure the correct CO2 performance is dependably achieved.

The recall is global, with 44,000 cars recalled in the UK over the same emissions problem two weeks ago.

The global campaign covers engines built between 2014 and 2018, prior to the changeover from NEDC to WLTP emissions regulations.

A total of 468 cars are included in the local campaign – a VIN list is attached here.

Jaguar Land Rover will contact owners of the affected cars, and advise them to organise a free software fix with their nearest dealers.
