Jaguar is recalling 3,754 2009 XF models because of instrument-cluster speaker function problems, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in the U.S.
“If the speaker fails, the following audible notifications are impacted: turn indicator, seatbelt warning, lights ‘on’ warning, driver’s door open with key in ignition, driver intervene (adaptive cruise control vehicles only) and seat memory,” said NHTSA. “The audible seatbelt warning is to remind drivers to wear their seatbelt. If the audible warning is not present, drivers may neglect to wear their safety belt, thereby increasing the risk of injury or death in the event of a crash.”
Last August, Jaguar recalled 7,918 2009 XF models because of a problem with the rear-seatbelt D-ring assembly. “In the event of a crash, a seat occupant may not be properly restrained,” said NHTSA in that recall.
