Latino Traffic Report has learned that Jaguar Land Rover North America, LLC (Jaguar) is recalling certain 2018 Jaguar E-Pace vehicles. The brackets that secure the front brake hoses may not have been installed properly, allowing the front brake hoses to contact the tires, possibly resulting in a brake fluid leak, lengthening the distance needed to stop the vehicle, and increasing the risk of a crash.
Jaguar will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the front brake hose brackets, replacing any that do not provide sufficient clearance, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin April 23, 2018. Owners may contact Jaguar customer service at 1-800-452-4827. Jaguar’s number for this recall is H074.
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
