Jaguar recalls Jaguar XE vehicles over missing spot welds

Emmanuel Akosile | ConsumerConnect

Jaguar is recalling three model year 2017-2018 and 2020 Jaguar XE cars that received a replacement rear rail assembly as part of a service repair.

The automaker said the missing spot welds may weaken the structural strength of the rear rail assembly in the affected vehicles.

The weakened rear rail assembly may allow the rear bumper beam to detach when the vehicle is being towed or the tow-bar assembly to detach when towing a trailer, it stated.

The company added that either of these can increase the risk of a crash.

In respect of what to do to correct the error, Jaguar will notify the affected owners, and dealers will replace the rear rail assembly free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin May 28, 2021.

Owners may contact Jaguar Customer Service on (800) 452-4827, and Jaguar’s number for this recall is H349.
