Jaguar Land Rover has announced it is recalling a total of 7079 Jaguar F-Types in the United States due to potential incorrect wiring for the front passenger airbag.
According to documents filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the seat belt harness connector may have been incorrectly installed. This would affect the sensors which determine if the front passenger airbag should be activated in the event of a crash.
As a result of the issue, there’s a possibility that the sensor may not recognise someone in the passenger seat meaning the airbag may not deploy in a crash.
Jaguar Land Rover confirmed that it has received three reports about the issue but no accidents or injuries have been reported.
