Summary: Jaguar Land Rover North America, LLC (Jaguar) is recalling certain model year 2013-2014 XF (XFR-S) vehicles manufactured July 2, 2013, to April 11, 2014. A component within the Power Assist Steering system (PAS) may collapse and restrict fluid flow within the PAS hose causing a loss of power steering.

Remedy: Jaguar will notify owners, and dealers will install an improved PAS hose, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on August 29, 2014. Owners may contact Jaguar customer service at 1-800-452-4827. Jaguar's number for this recall is J042.
