A weakness has been identified with the low-pressure fuel hose from the fuel filter, which may become detached.
If this occurs, the engine may be starved of fuel - leading to a loss of power for the engine which in turn could lead to reduced power steering and braking efficiency.
Further, a fuel leak under the bonnet contacting hot engine parts could result in a fire.
Both XE and XF models from the 2016 and 2017 model-years are affected by the recall, with 468 and 126 examples affected respectively.
Elsewhere in the range, Jaguar recalled 13 of its XJ models from 2013 and 2014 last year, due to a potential brake line fault caused by incorrect torque specifications at the factory.
Jaguar will attempt to contact affected owners shortly, but any owner wishing to learn more about the latest round of recalls should contact their local dealer.
