Luxury car maker Jaguar is recalling certain 2010 XK and XF models to fix a problem that could cause fluid leaks in the engine compartment. The recall includes 6,085 vehicles built from June 27, 2009, through March 10, 2010. In a defect notice filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Jaguar says pipes that are part of the power steering system have a zinc-nickel plating that does not meet the company’s standards for corrosion protection. As a result corrosion could eventually lead to pinholes in the pipes that would allow power steering fluid to leak. The loss of fluid would make the car harder to steer and could also cause a fire if it came in contact with a hot surface under the hood. Under the recall, which is expected to begin on or before April 11, dealership technicians will replace the power steering fluid pipes with parts manufactured with the proper level of corrosion protection. The service is free of charge. Owners can contact Jaguar at 1-800-452-4827.
