Jaguar Land Rover North America is recalling certain model year 2013-2015 XK, XKR and XKR-S vehicles manufactured August 24, 2012, to June 10, 2014, and equipped with a 5.0L engine.
The tire placard has incorrect information for the spare tire stating "none" for the inflation pressure of the spare wheel. Thus, these vehicles do not comply with the requirements of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 110, "Tire Selection and Rims for Passenger Cars."
Jaguar's number for this recall is: J041
NHTSA Campaign Number: 14V389000
Component: tire placard has incorrect information
Potential Number of Units Affected: 144
If the recommended pressure for the spare tire is not provided, the tire may not be properly inflated which may result in its failure, increasing the risk of a crash.
Jaguar will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the vehicles and, as necessary, attach a corrected tire placard label stating the tire size and pressure, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on August 30, 2014. Owners may contact Jaguar customer service at 1-800-452-4827.
Customers may contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (tty: 1-800-424-9153); or go to Safercar.
