Recall Alert: 2013-2014 Jaguar XF

2014JaguarXF

Vehicles Affected: More than 80 model-year 2013-14 Jaguar XF luxury sedans, including XFR-S variants, manufactured between July 2, 2013, and April 11, 2014

The Problem: A component within the power assist steering system may collapse and restrict fluid flow within the system hose, causing a loss of power steering; this increases the effort needed to steer, increasing the risk of a crash.

The Fix: Jaguar will begin notifying owners on Aug. 29, and dealers will install an improved hose for free.

What Owners Should Do: Owners can call Jaguar at 800-452-4827, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov for more info.

Recall Alert: 2013-2015 Jaguar XK

2015JaguarXKRecall

Vehicles Affected: About 150 model-year 2013-15 Jaguar XK luxury sports cars, including XKR and XKR-S variants, manufactured between Aug. 24, 2012, and June 10, 2014, and equipped with a 5.0-liter engine

Jaguar Releases New Photo of 3 Series-Fighter XE

Jaguar XE

Jaguar is whetting people's appetites for the all-new midsize XE with a glimpse of the 3 Series fighter poking its nose out of a building — the rest of the car is still under wraps. The recently released image isn't a very different angle from what we've already seen, though it shows a flesh and blood (aluminum and composite?) depiction instead of a heavily disguised rendering.

When it goes on sale in 2016, the aluminum-chassis XE will use a new 2.0-liter four-cylinder gasoline and diesel engines, plus offer a full range of engine choices with enough juice for one particular XE to top 186 mph.

2014JaguarXFRecall

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

Photo Gallery: Jaguar F-Type Project 7

Jaguar-f-type-project-7_500

Jaguar has confirmed that it intends to build 250 examples of the 2013 F-Type Project 7 concept car for sale to the public, using its Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations team to handle the assembly of the custom two-seat roadster. Inspired by the 60th anniversary of the LeMans-winning Jaguar D-type race car, the F-Type Project 7 features handmade carbon- fiber aerodynamic aids and a unique suspension, as well as the most powerful engine Jaguar has ever put in a car: a 575-horsepower, supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 mated to an eight- speed automatic transmission. Jaguar says it will propel the Project 7 from zero to 60 mph in just 3.8 seconds with an electronically limited top speed of 186 mph, making it the fastest car Jaguar has ever produced.

More Jaguar News

Several high-performance features will be standard on the Project 7, including carbon- ceramic brakes, a torque vectoring system and race-inspired seats. The only roof will be a stowable fabric strip that stretches from the top of the windshield and accommodates the D-type-inspired fairing behind the driver's head. It will be fully road-legal, however, and even features a trunk that holds 7 cubic feet of luggage.

The first examples of the new Project 7 will be delivered to customers in mid-2015, and it will make its public debut at the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed in West Sussex, England on Thursday. Pricing has not yet been announced.

Porsche Flies, Fiat Flails in 2014 J.D. Power Initial Quality Study

IMG_7681

Porsche, Jaguar and Lexus topped J.D. Power's 2014 Initial Quality Study. Porsche and Lexus were among the top three brands in 2013, while Jaguar jumped seven spots to land at No. 2. And at the other end, Fiat, Jeep and Mitsubishi had the worst results. Two of those three — Mitsubishi and Fiat — were among 2013's bottom-feeders.

2011 Models Less Reliable Than 2010 Vehicles, J.D. Power Study Finds

IQS, one of several influential J.D. Power studies, is now in its 28th year. It expresses quality as problems per 100 vehicles in the first 90 days of ownership. A lower score is better. Among 32 brands surveyed this year, Porsche led with just 74 problems — and Fiat was last, at 206.

"Porsche has three vehicles that are best-in-segment," Renee Stephens, vice president of U.S. auto quality at the company, told us. Those include the 911, Panamera and Boxster. Two others — the Cayenne and Cayman — were top nominated in their segments.

A bout of sunny weather coincided with a bumper crop of test convertibles this spring — our drive of the 2014 Mazda MX-5 Miata was followed by a stint in the droptop version of Jaguar's newest car, the F-Type. We tested the 495-horsepower, supercharged V-8 model of the rear-wheel-drive soft-top roadster in eye-popping Italian Racing Red, matching its eye-popping $103,820 sticker price after options and destination.
