Jaguar’s new 5.0L V8-powered models are in trouble. The NHTSA says that 5,048 of the automaker’s 2010 and 2011 XF and XK models equipped with the 5.0-liter engine are being recalled for a faulty fuel pump relay.
The problem can reportedly occur if the in-tank electronic fuel pump isn’t properly activated when the fuel pump relay is energized at vehicle start-up. When this happens, the engine could receive inadequate amounts of fuel, resulting in the vehicle abruptly stalling with little or no warning, which would potentially result in an unscheduled accident.
Beginning August 30 of this year owners of affected vehicles can simply take their faulty cat to the nearest Jaguar store for a free software update that should fix the issue.
