Airbag issue sparks Jaguar XJ recall

2010/11 Jaguar XJ cars recalled

A potentially dangerous fault has been identified in Jaguar XJ cars built in early part of this decade.

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) is overseeing the recall of MY2010 and MY2011 Jaguar XJ vehicles sold in Australia after the possible airbag issue was identified.

The recall will affect Jaguar XJ vehicles within this VIN range - SAJAC12P5ALV00006 to SAJYA16E5BMV12021.

The ACCC advises that if the vehicle is in a frontal collision severe enough to deploy the front airbags, the airbags may deploy with too much force, due to the possibility of over set parameters.

What are the hazards?

This may lead to increased injuries to the occupants.

What should 2010/11 Jaguar XJ owners do?

Owners of affected vehicles will be contacted by Jaguar Australia, requesting them to contact their preferred retailer who will update the Restraint Control Module (RCM) with the latest software.

This is the second recall of the Jaguar XJ in the past year, 2016 models were required back at a dealership after a possibly malformed airbag inflation canister required attention.

The XJ was also involved in a recall last year that affected diesel-powered vehicles and related to the air suspension system.
