The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a recall of 4,195 Jaguar XF models from the 2010 to 2012 model years due to potential fuel leak woes.

In its statement, NHTSA says that the affected vehicles are those "equipped with a 5.0-liter gasoline engine" – all US-spec XF models have this V8 underhood – but a spokesperson from Jaguar North America confirmed to Autoblog that this recall does, in fact, apply to both naturally aspirated and supercharged models.

According to NHTSA, "The affected vehicles may have a fuel tank fuel outlet flange that may crack." This means that fuel has the potential to leak onto the ground, and in the presence of an ignition source, catch fire.

The official recall campaign will begin in early December, at which point Jaguar will notify its owners and dealers will replace the faulty fuel outlet flanges free of charge. Scroll down to read the full NHTSA notice.

      Several EU luxury car makers use the same supplier for this fuel system component. They should all be investigated.

      Sounds familiar.... NHTSA has been investigating the 2003-2006 Mercedes E55 AMGs for a similar issue. Over 65 documented cases of fuel leaks have been filed wtih NHTSA so far. Hopefully this is recall is just the first step by NHTSA to hold manufacturers accountable for fuel leaks of this type. This is more than just a nuisance issue, it is a serious safety issue. If anyone doubts the seriousness of the leaks, feel free to check out this photo I took under the rear seat of my 2006 E55. The entire fuel sender cavity is filled with raw fuel!

      'Select' sounds pretty exclusive. Is the fuel leak and fire an extra cost option?

      Glad they caught it before it became an issue.

      Actually, no - all US-spec XFs do not have this V8 underhood. I own a 2010 XF Luxury Model with the 4.2 liter V8. These cars are nightmares, regardless.
