A number of safety concerns affecting certain 2015 Jaguar F-Type, XF, and XJ cars will have approximately 272 owners returning to their dealership for repairs.

A questionable assembly process could result in the Front End Accessory Drive (FEAD) belt, Power Assisted Steering (PAS) pump pulley, positive cable at the alternator, and associated parts to loosen and detach. If the battery positive cable loosens, an electrical short may result, increasing the risk of a fire. If the FEAD belt looses or detaches, the vehicle may lose power assisted steering, increasing the risk of a crash.

Additionally, some 2014-2015 Jaguar F-Type vehicles may have been assembled with an incorrectly wired connector between the Seatbelt Tension Sensor (STS) and the Occupant Classification Sensor Control Module (OCSCM). A child seat or small passenger may not be detected and in the event of an accident, may not provide the required level of occupant protection.

Owners receiving notices will be asked to return to their dealership to have the affected components inspected and repaired as necessary. For more information about the problems, owners are asked to contact Jaguar customer service at 1-800-452-4827.
