Jaguar is recalling 1,989 model-year 2011-14 XK convertibles due to a problem with the power window switch, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The affected vehicles were manufactured between Oct. 1, 2010, and Aug. 1, 2013; check your vehicle's build date on a sticker on the driver-side doorjamb. The switch in the overhead roof console also activates the power-operated windows when the convertible roof is opening or closing, but does not move downward to close the windows; this could cause the windows to inadvertently activate and pinch or injure an arm or finger, NHTSA stated.
Jaguar will begin notifying owners Sept. 27, and dealers will replace the overhead roof console for free. Owners can call Jaguar at 800-452-4827, NHTSA's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov for more info.Related
