Incorrect Description Of The Occupant Sensor System For The Passenger Frontal Air Bag In The Own

Recall Details

The owner's manual does not list accurate information regarding the operation of the occupant sensor system (OSS) for the passenger frontal air bag. Dealers will supply a supplement to the owner's handbook free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The information and description of operation of the passenger frontal air bag system's occupant sensor system (OSS) in the owner's manual is incorrect. A lack of proper and accurate understanding of how this system operates can increase risk of injury to occupants.

What Should You Do?

Recall repairs on your Jaguar must be performed by a Jaguar dealership. Jaguar will notify known owners of affected vehicles beginning in March, 2015. If you do not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Jaguar dealerships. They will also check for any other incomplete recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
