SUMMARY:

Jaguar Land Rover North America, LLC (Jaguar) is recalling certain model year 2011-2014 XK convertible vehicles manufactured October 1, 2010, through August 1, 2013.

The switch in the overhead roof console also activates the power operated windows when the convertible roof is opening or closing. The switch does not move downward to close the windows.


Therefore, these vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 118, "Power-Operated Window, Partition, and Roof Panel Systems."

CONSEQUENCE:
The power windows may inadvertently be activated and pinch or injure an arm or finger.

REMEDY:
Jaguar will notify owners, and dealers will replace the overhead roof console, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin by September 27, 2013. Owners may contact Jaguar at 1-800-452-4827. Jaguar's recall number is J030.

NOTES:
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153)
