Jaguar Land Rover North America is recalling 8,232 2017-model year Jaguar XE and F-Type vehicles because of faulty front seat belt pretensioners, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

“The affected vehicles have front seat seatbelt pretensioners that may not function properly in the event of a crash,” NHTSA warned on its website.

The Jaguar XE sedans were manufactured from July 12 through Dec. 2 in 2016. The Jaguar F-Type cars were manufactured from July 14 through Dec. 16 in 2016.

Dealers will inspect the front seat belt assemblies and replace them if needed. There will be no charge for this service.

The recall is expected to get under way Feb. 20. Jaguar customer service can be reached at (800) 452-4827. Jaguar’s number for this recall is J081.
