SERVICE BULLETIN
08-MAR-18 NO.: 7-144USA SEC.: RECALL MKT.: USA

 

Jaguar Land Rover North America, LLC has informed the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) of its intent to perform a voluntary Safety Recall on certain 2018 model year Jaguar XF Sportbrake vehicles imported into the United States market. Information relating to this Recall will be posted on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website.

United States Federal regulations require that retailers must be notified within a reasonable time after the manufacturer decides that a defect that relates to motor vehicle safety or a noncompliance exists.

United States Federal law requires retailers to complete any outstanding safety Recall service before a new vehicle is delivered to the buyer or lessee. Violation of this requirement by a retailer could result in a civil penalty of up to $21,000.00 per vehicle.

This Recall Service Bulletin serves as notification to all Jaguar retailers in the United States and Federalized Territories that any affected new vehicles may not be sold and delivered for customer use until the Recall repair is completed.

DESCRIPTION OF ISSUE

An issue has been identified on a limited number of Jaguar vehicles within the listed Affected Vehicle Range with the calibration of the Supplementary Restraint System (SRS). The calibration of the Restraints Control Module (RCM) does not provide the correct airbag deployment signals in the event of a crash.
