Jaguar Recalls Model Year 2017-2018 and 2020 Jaguar XEs Due to Missing Spot Welds

Jaguar recalled three model year 2017-2018 and 2020 Jaguar XEs that received a replacement rear rail assembly as part of a service repair due to potential safety risk.

Missing spot welds may weaken the structural strength of the rear rail assembly.

The weakened rear rail assembly may allow the rear bumper beam to detach when the vehicle is being towed or the tow-bar assembly to detach when towing a trailer.

Either of these can increase the risk of a crash.

Jaguar will notify owners, while dealers will replace the rear rail assembly free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin May 28, 2021.

There have been no reported incidents to date.
