2020 Nissan Navara dual-cab pricing and specs

Nissan has introduced some slight changes and improvements to its Navara dual-cab range in 2020, along with a small increase in prices. Currently, single-cab and king-cab variants in the Navara range remain unchanged. The Navara ST now gets a ‘black styling package’, swapping out chrome on the sports bar, fog light surrounds and mirror caps. Wheels also change from 16-inch to 18-inch, and an increase in tyre diameter means there is more off-road clearance to boot.

2011-2014 Kia Carnival recalled over petrol leak potential

Kia has announced a recall for its 'VQ' Carnival, across the 2011 to 2014 model years. Affecting 12,123 vehicles in Australia, the recall is regarding the potential for a small heat-induced crack to appeal in the fuel rail of petrol models. In the event a crack appears, a fuel leak could result, which could lead to fire and/or a leak onto the road, increasing risk of harm to occupants and other road users.
