Jaguar Recalls 1,346 Jaguar XJ Vehicles, Feb. 10, 2015

Washington, DC—(ENEWSPF)—February 10, 2015

SUMMARY: Jaguar Land Rover North America, LLC (Jaguar) is recalling certain model year 2015 Jaguar XJ vehicles manufactured July 2, 2014, to December 4, 2014. The affected vehicles may have an incorrect description of the operation of Occupant Sensor System (OSS) in the owner’s manual. Since the manual does not correspond with the actual Air Bag Status Indicator Lamp, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 208, “Occupant Crash Protection.”

CONSEQUENCE: If the occupant does not correctly understand how air bag functions, they may be at an increased risk of personal injury in the event of a crash.

REMEDY: Jaguar will notify owners, and supply a supplement to add to the owner’s handbook, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin March 13, 2015. Owners may contact Jaguar customer service at 1-800-452-4827. Jaguar’s number for this recall is J050.

NOTES: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
