WASHINGTON — Jaguar Land Rover North America is recalling 70 2013 Jaguar XJ sedans because of a software calibration problem that may affect the supplemental restraint system, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

"The generic software calibration installed on the vehicle's Restraints Control Module may not meet the specification for proper operation of the supplemental restraint system," said NHTSA in its summary of the problem. "Vehicles that have the generic software may put the occupants at an increased risk of injury in the event of a crash."

The company told federal safety regulators it is not aware of any reports of accidents or injuries linked to the recall.

The affected vehicles were built from May 21, 2012 through July 10, 2012. The problem was discovered during an unrelated vehicle investigation, according to Jaguar Land Rover.

Jaguar dealers will upload new software for the Restraints Control Module. The recall is expected to begin on July 29. Owners can contact Jaguar at (855) 524-8278.

Edmunds says: This recall will begin in a few weeks, but if you have immediate concerns, contact your dealer.
