Reports from China referencing a potential fuel leak relate to the 2.2-litre diesel engine, which is available in the Jaguar XF, Land Rover Freelander 2 and the Range Rover Evoque.

The manufacturer will recall 3,196 Jaguar XF models made between July 2012 and May 2013, as well as XJs produced between March 2012 and May 2013.

Meanwhile, roughly 8,656 Land Rover Freelander 2s and Range Rover Evoques made between January 2012 and June 2013 will also be recalled due to a possible oil leakage problem.

But as these engines are also available in certain JLR models in the UK, Jaguar Land Rover has exclusively revealed to Car Dealer that customers here could be affected.

In a statement, JLR told Car Dealer: ‘Potentially affected customers will be notified by letter over the coming weeks and as you would expect modifications made to affected vehicles will be made free of charge and every effort will be made to minimise inconvenience to the customer during the short time required for the work to be carried out.’
