2014JaguarXFRecall

Vehicles Affected: Nearly 70 model-year 2013-14 Jaguar XF luxury sedans manufactured between Oct. 18, 2012, and Feb. 25, 2014

The Problem: The right-hand brake pipe may wear against a bracket on the rear subframe, which could cause the brake pipe to wear through and leak brake fluid; this could lengthen braking distances, increasing the risk of a crash.

The Fix: Jaguar will notify owners starting July 29, and dealers will inspect the rear brake pipe for signs of wear, manipulate the bracket on the rear subframe, and inspect and replace the rear brake pipes if wear is visible. The automaker will make the repairs for free.

What Owners Should Do: Owners can call Jaguar at 855-524-8278, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit www.safercar.gov for more info.

2013 Jaguar XF: Family Checklist

13XF_main

Cars can impact how we feel about ourselves, and when it's good, it can be thrilling. That's certainly true with the 2013 Jaguar XF. It made me — an overwhelmed minivan-driving mom of three, wife of one and servant to all — feel like a million bucks. As for my three little ones, even they were impressed by its elegant feel. The pronounced silver Jaguar ornaments on the steering wheel and hood are always popular with the small set.

The XF isn't perfect, but it's got a lot going for it and given the increased sense of self-worth it gave me, a price of $69,045 almost seems like a bargain.

Even the XF's drive seems luxurious. The 340-horsepower, supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 engine that I tested accelerates effortlessly and gears shift smoothly. There is an Eco mode that turns the engine off when idling at stoplights or in heavy traffic.

Cars.com Reviews the 2014 Jaguar XFR-S

2014JaguarXFR-S

Cars.com reviewer Joe Wiesenfelder says the 2014 Jaguar XFR-S aims for maximum road performance yet achieves track readiness. With exterior styling already beefed-up from the XF to XFR models, the XFR-S further gooses aggression to great effect — but skip that garish optional spoiler. Power also increases on the sedan's 5.0-liter V-8, good for 550 horsepower, 502 pounds-feet of torque and a 4.4-second zero-to-60 time. The controlled, tasteful ride is undermined by an exhaust noise guaranteed to annoy anyone outside, but, hey, it's nice and quiet in the cabin, where you'll be.

Cars.com Reviews the 2013 Jaguar XF

2013-jaguar-xf

The recent trend of stylish, high-amenity cars swapping power for fuel efficiency isn't something that Jaguar's XF can handle, says Cars.com reviewer Aaron Bragman. The 2013 model's new turbocharged four-cylinder engine is only modestly powerful, and its eight-speed automatic transmission is poorly tuned — together the pair returns unimpressive fuel economy. Bragman says the XF is still sexy, but this big cat has lost its roar.

Recall Alert: 2013 Jaguar XF

2013-jaguar-xf

Jaguar is recalling 940 model-year 2013 versions of the XF sedan due to a problem with the air cooler hose, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The affected vehicles use the turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and were manufactured from July 2012 through May 2013; check your vehicle's build date on a sticker on the driver-side doorjamb. In these sedans, the air cooler hose may be loose, allowing it to detach. If this happens, the engine could stall, increasing the risk of a crash.

Jaguar will notify owners beginning Sept. 27, and dealers will secure the hose for free. Owners can call Jaguar at 800-452-4827 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.

Recall Alert: 2013 Jaguar XF

2013JaguarXF

Jaguar is recalling 13 model-year 2013 XF sedans due to a problem in the electrical system that could affect the fuel pump and cause engine stalling, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

In the affected vehicles, manufactured from Oct. 3 to Oct. 12, 2012, the electronic modules that control the fuel pump may shut down, causing the pump to stop. The resulting fuel starvation will cause the engine to stall, increasing the risk of a crash.

Jaguar will begin notifying owners on Jan. 18 and dealers will install an additional wiring harness to the in-tank fuel pump for free. Owners may call Jaguar customer service at 855-524-8278 or NHTSA at 888-327-4236; for more info, go to www.safercar.gov.

Jaguar to Show Off Three Models at 2012 L.A. Auto Show

Jaguar f-type
Jaguar and Land Rover plan to unveil a trio of vehicles at next week's L.A. Auto Show, and we've already seen two of them. Jaguar's all-new F-type was unveiled at the Paris Motor Show and goes on sale next spring. The two-seat sports car is loosely based on Jaguar's C-X16 coupe concept, which made the auto-show rounds last year.

We've also had an up-close look at Land Rover's redesigned lightweight, aluminum-heavy 2013 Range Rover. It also will make its U.S. auto show debut in L.A.

Lastly, the automaker will unveil a high-performance version of the XF, the 2014 XFR-S. The sedan will make its world debut at the L.A. show. Specs haven't been announced, but Jaguar is calling the limited-edition car the "fastest and most powerful sedan Jaguar has ever produced." Only 100 will be made.
