Jaguar Cars Ltd.
Models:     Jaguar XK                   Years:      1997-2003
Number Potentially Involved:   39,448
Dates of Manufacture:  February 1996 – May 2003
Noncompliance:  Certain passenger vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment." The headlamp adjustment mechanism may be operated without suitable instruction on either the mechanism or in the Owner’s Manual. This does not meet the requirements of the standard. An improperly aimed headlamp could provide less effective roadway illumination or could cause increased glare to oncoming vehicles.
Remedy:   Owners will be provided with an Owner’s Manual addendum containing the necessary headlamp aiming instructions. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during February 2004. Owners may contact Jaguar at 1-800-452-4827.
