2012 Jaguar XF: We're Part of the Recall
November 14, 2012
Last week we reported on a fuel system recall for 2010-2012 Jaguar XFs. We called the Jaguar hotline and the operator informed us that our call was not part of the recall.
A few hours passed and our phone rang. It was Jaguar, "We researched further and found out your car is affected by the recall. Parts will be available beginning December 7th." Strange.
According to the recall notification, "Most of the affected vehicles were built between April 2009 and January 2010." We don't fall into that category. The notice added, "But a small number of 2010, 2011 and 2012 vehicles have had a fuel tank fuel outlet flange fitted as a service replacement part."
Perhaps the flange was replaced prior to our receipt of the car. Perhaps it is just a precaution on the part of Jaguar. After all, they do own the car. Regardless, we'll keep you updated.
