Jaguar Land Rover North America is recalling 297 2013-2014 model-year XJ, XF and XK vehicles because of a potential problem that can affect vehicle control, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports. 

The toe links, components used to control the alignment of the rear wheels, might separate from the rear sub-frame. If this occurs, a loss of vehicle stability and directional control may result and increase the risk of a crash, NHTSA said.

Jaguar dealers will replace the nut and washer assembly on the rear toe links, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin around May 27.

Vehicle owners can reach Jaguar at 1-855-524-8278. Jaguar's number for this recall is J037.
