WASHINGTON — Jaguar Land Rover North America is recalling 68 2013-'14 Jaguar XF cars because the rear brake pipe may leak brake fluid, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

"In the affected vehicles, the right-hand rear brake pipe may wear against a bracket located on the rear sub-frame," NHTSA said in its summary of the problem. "This condition may cause the brake pipe to wear through and leak brake fluid. Leaking brake fluid can lengthen braking distance and increase the risk of a vehicle crash."

The automaker said the problem was discovered during durability testing.

"There have been no reports of accidents or injuries as a result of this concern," the automaker told federal safety regulators.

The affected XFs were built from October 18, 2012 through February 25, 2014.

Jaguar dealers will inspect the rear brake pipe for signs of wear, manipulate the bracket on the rear sub-frame and inspect and replace the rear brake pipes if wear is visible.

The recall is expected to begin on July 29. Owners can contact Jaguar at 1-855-524-8278.

Edmunds says: If you own one of these 2013-'14 Jaguar XFs, wait for your official recall notice and then contact your dealer. But if you have any immediate concerns, take the car in for repairs now.
