I believe Jaguar should recall the fuel rail because the aluminum fuel rails corrode from the inside out from using certain ethanol fuels with low water content, which cause a pinhole that sprayed raw gasoline onto a hot engine which cause a fire. Those aluminum fuel rails were need to be replaced with stainless steel rails. My car was almost caught on fire due to a pinhole fuel leak which developed. And this occurred while stationary and moving the smell was so strong I had to drive with the windows down. And to make matters worst the fuel rail is no longer available through Jaguar the part is obsolete so how can we have are car repaired if Jaguar doesn't even carry the part "?"

The electrical issue in this car is completely unbearable, it consistently drains the battery until it is dead and cannot take a jump start. I was told by a gentleman that there was a recall in regards to this matter. The fuel system is also a major complication. The fuel comes through the vents of the vehicle and it is so potent that I have gotten sick on a few occasions while operating the vehicle. The vehicle can be stationary and in motion while these mishaps are occurring. It is really sad and disappointing to sell cars this expensive and experience so many complications. My vehicle is in the repair shop at this very moment.

This happened for the first time on 09/04/2016. I was going in highway at 70mph the car suddenly stopped for 0.5 second and turned on by itself. All the electrical system restarted at that time. I did not take it seriously at that time and it started to come again and this time it is in the local road where I was going at 30 mph. This time the car stopped and the steering is struck. I changed the car to park mode and started the car again. The same thing happened several times after that and the car started automatically. I have a new battery on the car and the key fob has new battery and the car started straightway. I don't see any other problems other than this. I took the take to a mechanic and they could not diagnose the issue and asked to take it to the Jaguar dealer. I have an appointment with the dealer tomorrow. Yesterday it happened again the highway and this time the car stopped. I managed to pull the car to the side lane and started the car again. This is very dangerous condition. Hence I'm reporting this.
