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.
