2013 Jaguar XJEnlarge Photo
Jaguar has issued a recall on three of its models--the XF, XJ and XK--because of a toe link that could end up separating from the rear sub-frame. Toe links are used to control the alignment of the wheels, in this case the rear pair, and without them the driver may experience a loss of vehicle stability, heightening the chance of a crash.
The recall only affects certain XF, XJ and XK models from the 2013 and 2014 model years, of which there are said to be just 297 examples in the U.S. Jaguar has not received any reports of accidents or injuries related to this issue.
Owners will be notified of the recall via mail, and the expected recall start date is on or before May 27, 2014. The remedy calls for dealers to replace the nut and washer assembly on the rear toe links, a service they will offer free of charge.
