2014-'15 Jaguar XJ Recalled for Brake Fluid Leak

WASHINGTON Jaguar Land Rover North America is recalling 1,571 2014-'15 Jaguar XJ sedans to fix a potential brake fluid leak, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

"In the affected vehicles, the brake line junctions under the vehicle may leak brake fluid," said NHTSA in its recalls summary. "A brake fluid leak may reduce the vehicle's braking ability, requiring additional distance to stop the vehicle, thereby increasing the risk of a crash."

There has been one reported accident linked to the recall and no reported injuries, the automaker told federal safety regulators.

The affected vehicles were built from February 6, 2014 to July 23, 2014.

Jaguar dealers will inspect the brake line junctions, tightening them as necessary. The recall is expected to begin on January 16. Owners can contact Jaguar at 1-800-452-4827.

Edmunds says: This recall doesn't begin for a month, but if you have any immediate concerns, it's best to contact your dealer now.
