Recall Date Problem Area Recall Text
06/06/11 Jaguar is recalling certain model year 2010 xk and xf vehicles manufactured from june 27, 2009, through march 10, 2010. the power assist steering (pas) pipes have been supplied with zinc-nickel plating that does not meet fully the corrosion protection requirements of jaguar's engineering specification. after an extended period of time in service, corrosion of the pas pipes will occur that may lead to pin-holing of the pipe.

Pin-holing of the pas pipes could allow pressurized power steering fluid to leak into the under-hood and engine bay area. a loss of power steering fluid will result in a loss of power assist steering. also, that fluid may ignite if it comes into contact with an ignition source or a surface at sufficiently high enough temperature, causing a vehicle fire.

Dealers will replace the power steering fluid pipes with parts manufactured to the required corrosion protection specification. this service will be performed free of charged. the safety recall is expected to begin on or before june 6, 2011. owners may contact jaguar at 1-800-452-4827.

06/08/09 Jaguar is recalling 112 my 2007-2009 xk vehicles fitted with run flat tires for failing to comply with the requirements of federal motor vehicle safety standard no.138, "tire pressure monitoring system, (tpms)." the tpms warnings were turned off. if the tpms electronic control unit were to send a signal to the instrument cluster to display a tpms warning telltale, the light would not illuminate nor would the supplementary warning text on the instrument cluster message center be displayed.

Failure to warn of tire deflations is a non-compliance with fmvss 138 and could lead to tire failure and a crash.

Dealers will update the car configuration file settings to enable the instrument cluster to flag the warning symbols as required by fmvss 138 and associated test in the instrument cluster message center. the remedy will be performed free of charge. the recall is expected to begin on or before june 8, 2009. owners may contact jaguar at 1-201-818-8500.

Jaguar XK Recalls

Some things are often misunderstood about recalls and technical service bulletins (TSBs). Plus a disclaimer.

  1. Recalls do not have to be issued only because something is prone to failure. NHTSA (a government agency) can only require a recall if a failure will affect safety, emissions, fuel economy, or compliance with some other regulation or law. Manufacturers can voluntarily recall cars for problems that do not affect these, though.
  2. Recalls often apply to only some cars of a specific model year, rather than all of them. You should receive a letter from the manufacturer if your car has been recalled. You can also check with the dealer, which will know which (if any) recalls pertain to your car.
  3. The primary purpose of TSBs is to inform dealers about known problems with a car and how to fix them. They are not the same as recalls. As with recalls, TSBs often only apply to some cars, not the entire model year.
  4. Dealers often will not provide a preventive repair just because a problem described in a TSB might happen to your car. They'll usually want to observe symptoms that the problem is already affecting your car.
  5. Even if there are symptoms, a manufacturer doesn't have to pick up the cost of a TSB repair if the car is out of warranty, though sometimes they do.

We provide the text of recalls and TSBs as provided by NHTSA. There can be errors in the text. If you sign up for notifications in My Garage, we will try to get these to do, but for various reasons (some beyond our control) cannot guarantee you will receive them. When in doubt about a recall or TSB, contact the dealer.
