Ford skipping 2019 Geneva motor show

Ford has announced it will not be attending the 2019 Geneva motor show in March, as it doesn't align with the company's upcoming product launches. Speaking with the UK's Autocar, a spokesperson for the Blue Oval confirmed the news, arguing the brand wants to spend its dollars elsewhere to get "more bang for our buck". "We looked at all the things we had to do in 2019, and we’ve got a lot of stuff coming," the Ford spokesperson said.

BMW M850i xDrive coupe review

We've been here before, and it didn't end well. Back in 1989, BMW replaced the 'E24' 6 Series Coupe with a sleek-looking tech-laden leviathan in the futuristic shape of the 'E31' 8 Series – a car that was meant to act as a halo for the whole brand, but which struggled in the market, selling just over 30,000 globally during its 10-year lifespan. Three decades on and history repeats, with another 8 Series arriving to usurp a 6 Series, and also to act as flagship for the wider brand.

According to company, an internal ignition switch spring may have been manufactured with a surface defect. After 'prolonged normal usage', the issue could make the engine turn off while driving. If that coincides with an accident, the airbags might not correctly fire. A total of 2060 Navara and 14 Juke models are affected – VIN lists are attached to their respective vehicle names.
