2019-20 Jaguar F-Type V6 recalled for being too noisy

The 2020 Jaguar F-Type has been recalled due to models with the 3.0-litre supercharged V6 making too much noise. It appears you can have too much of a good thing, because Jaguar says the "static noise level exceeds the regulated maximum decibel limit" in the F-Type V6. A total of 28 cars are included in the campaign – a VIN list is attached here. Jaguar will contact owners of the affected vehicles and advise them to organise a free 'fix' with their nearest dealership.
