Recalls

There has been 1 safety recall issued from NHTSA.

VISIBILITY:WINDSHIELD WIPER/WASHERRecall Date: 11/12/2010
  • Summary: JAGUAR IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2010-2011 XJ VEHICLES MANUFACTURED FROM JULY 28, 2009, THROUGH NOVEMBER 3, 2010, FOR FAILING TO COMPLY WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD NO. 104, WINDSHIELD WIPING AND WASHING SYSTEMS. THE FRONT WIPER ARMS TO SPINDLE FIXINGS WERE NOT TORQUED TO SPECIFICATION DURING MANUFACTURING. AS A RESULT, THE SECURING NUTS COULD FAIL TO PERFORM AS INTENDED, RESULTING IN A LOSS OF WIPER ARM SYNCHRONIZATION AND A CLASH OF THE WIPER ARMS.
  • Potential Number of Units Affected: 6475
  • Consequence: IF THE WIPER ARMS LOSE SYNCHRONIZATION AND CLASH, THEY COULD DETACH FROM THE VEHICLE, REDUCING A DRIVERS VISIBILITY AND INCREASING THE RISK OF CRASH.
  • Remedy: DEALERS WILL ENSURE THE WIPER ARMS ARE FITTED SECURELY ONTO THE SPINDLE AND THE SECURING NUTS WILL BE TIGHTENED TO THE CORRECT TORQUE. THIS SERVICE WILL BE PERFORMED FREE OF CHARGE. THE SAFETY RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON OR BEFORE DECEMBER 13, 2010. OWNERS MAY CONTACT JAGUAR AT 800-637-6837.

Warranty

The 2011 Jaguar XJ comes with a five-year/50,000-mile limited warranty. Additionally, Jaguar includes 24/7 roadside assistance and free scheduled maintenance for the warranty period. This coverage is slightly better than many competing super luxury cars. The only other competitor to include free scheduled maintenance is BMW. Still, the four-year/50,000-mile warranty on the 7-Series ends a year sooner. If you don’t rack up the miles, you’ll have longer lasting coverage with the XJ.
