WASHINGTON — Jaguar Land Rover North America is recalling 940 2013 Jaguar XF 2.0L GTDi vehicles for a possible stalling problem, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
"The hose clamp for the charge air cooler may be out of position and loose, allowing the hose to detach," said NHTSA in its summary of the problem. "If the hose detaches, the engine may stall, increasing the risk of a crash. Additionally, steering and brake assistance may be lost, further increasing the risk."
The affected vehicles were built from July 2012-May 2013.
Jaguar Land Rover said it received an initial field report in February 2013 of a vehicle "that had cut out while in motion." Upon inspection, it was found that the charge air cooler hose was detached. Further reports were received in April 2013, the automaker told NHTSA.
There has been one reported low-speed accident as a result of the problem, the automaker said. There have been no reports of injuries.
Jaguar dealers will inspect the charge air cooler hose to make sure its clamp is in the correct position and tight. The recall is expected to begin in September. Owners can contact Jaguar at 1-800-452-4827.
