2018 Citroen C3 recalled

Citroen has recalled the 2018 C3 hatchback, over concerns about the top tether anchor point on the passenger seat. According to the company a top-tether child seat anchor point has been fitted to the passenger seat when it shouldn't have been. Although it's legal to switch off the passenger airbag in Europe, allowing a child seat to be fitted up front, Australian laws don't allow the airbag to be deactivated.

Lexus SC430: Takata recall expanded

Lexus Australia has expanded its Takata airbag recall for the SC430 sports car, now extending all the way to MY2010 versions. As per the original recall issued in November last year, affected vehicles were fitted with 'like for like' Takata airbag inflators as part of previous recalls. These could still be potentially faulty after several years. For this recall, the affected Lexus SC430 models will have their faulty airbags replaced with non-Takata components.
