WASHINGTON Jaguar Land Rover North America is recalling 297 2013-'14 Jaguar XJ, XF and XK cars to fix a hardware problem that may lead to a loss of vehicle stability, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

"In the affected vehicles, the toe links, components used to control the alignment of the rear wheels, can separate from the rear sub-frame," said NHTSA in its summary of the problem. "If a toe link separates from the rear sub-frame, a loss of vehicle stability and directional control may result, increasing the risk of a crash."

Jaguar Land Rover told federal safety regulators the problem appears to be linked to "prolonged aggressive driving with frequent lateral and braking force inputs."

There are no reported accidents or injuries linked to the recall, the company told federal safety regulators.

Jaguar dealers will replace the nut and washer assembly on the rear toe links. The recall is expected to begin around May 27. Owners can contact Jaguar at 1-855-524-8278.

Edmunds says: It will take a little more than a month before this recall begins. If you have any immediate concerns, it's best to get in touch with your dealer.
