Jaguar is recalling three model year 2017-2018 and 2020 Jaguar XEs that received a replacement rear rail assembly as part of a service repair.
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.
What to do
Jaguar will notify owners, and dealers will replace the rear rail assembly free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin May 28, 2021.
Owners may contact Jaguar customer service at (800) 452-4827. Jaguar's number for this recall is H349.
