2009 Jaguar XF Recalls
The passenger frontal air bag assembly is deployed by an inflator which contains propellant that makes the air bag deploy. This propellant may degrade over time, especially when exposed to humidity and temperature cycling. As a result, the inflator may rupture on deployment, which can send metal shrapnel through the air bag, striking vehicle occupants. This could result in serious injury or death.
The driver's frontal air bag may not deploy properly in certain crashes due to a missing chemical enhancer required for second stage air bag deployment. This could increase risk of occupant injury.
There is a speaker on the instrument panel that provides warning notifications to the driver. These notifications include warnings for not wearing seat belts, leaving your lights on, and leaving your door open with the key in the ignition. Forgetting to wear your safety belt can increase the risk of injury or death in the event of a crash.
The seat belts in the back seats are secured by a special D-shaped ring to an anchor bolt. Because of how they are mounted, they may be come loose. If this happens, the person sitting in the seat may not be properly restrained in a collision.
