2010 Jaguar XF Recalled

Jaguar recently announced that it is recalling 2010 XF models in the United States after discovering that some of them come with tire labels not corresponding with the tires fitted on the vehicles. According to a notification posted on the official National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) website, the recall concerns 34 cars, each of them sold as model year 2010.

"Jaguar is recalling 34 model year 2010 XF vehicles for failing to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard no. 110, "Tire Selection and Rims". The recommended tire pressure on the tire placard label does not correspond with the tires fitted on the vehicles," the safety advisory reads.

The direct result of such a problem is that the tires could have an incorrect pressure which would obviously raise the risk of a crash, especially at higher speeds. The so-called glitch will be resolved in a minute, with dealers to replace the affected labels with a new one stating the correct recommended tire pressure.

"Customers may inflate tires to an incorrect pressure due to this tire pressure mislabeling," NHTSA explains. "Failure to inflate tires to the correct pressures can lead to loss of vehicle stability and increase the risk of a crash."

Recalls are expected to being on or before August 17, 2009 and all operations will be conducted free of charge.

"Dealers will be instructed to inspect the tire placard label. If the recommended pressure on the tire placard label does not correspond with the tires fitted on the vehicle, that label will be removed and replaced with a label stating the correct recommended tire pressure."
