Jaguar Land Rover To Recall Vehicles Over Airbag Defects

BEIJING -- Jaguar Land Rover will recall 8,952 vehicles in Chinese mainland due to defective airbags, China's Xinhua news agency reported quoting the national quality watchdog.

The recall was filed by Jaguar Land Rover China to the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine.

Starting from Jan 19, the company will recall 8,952 imported 2013 Jaguar XF vehicles manufactured between June 19, 2012, and Oct 1, 2013, according to the administration.

Gas generators of the airbags may break when airbags open, which will lead to injury of passengers, said the statement.

The automaker will check all the affected vehicles and replace defective parts free of charge, the statement said.
