2014-14.5 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV recalled

Mitsubishi has recalled the MY2014 and MY2014.5 Outlander PHEV, over concerns about an airflow sensor in the internal-combustion engine. According to the company, the airflow sensor in the petrol engine could fail. If the problem occurs, the car's performance will be diminished, causing the EV warning lamp to come on. The petrol engine could stop when the EV warning lamp comes on, which means the battery won't be charged and the car mightn't start.

2018-19 Porsche Cayenne recalled

Porsche has recalled the 2018-19 Cayenne, over concerns about an issue with the brake wear warning light. According to the company, a problem with the car's software could mean the red brake wear warning light won't be illuminated continuously when the brake pads are worn. Only a yellow message, which can be dismissed, will be shown instead. If the message is ignored for too long, drivers could drive with worn out brake pads, leading to a higher risk of accident.
