2019 Audi Q7 recalled over airbag that may not inflate properly

Audi Australia has issued a recall of five of its 2019 Q7 (model code 4M) SUVs affected by a faulty airbag component.

Porsche Cars Australia has recalled 5328 examples of its model-years 2014 to 2019 Macan, Macan S, Macan GTS and Macan Turbo.

If damaged, it could result in a fuel leak, which may cause a fire.

2014-2015 Mazda CX-5 recalled for lighting fix

Mazda has recalled model-years 2014 to 2015 examples of its popular CX-5 SUV to address a problem with its LED light signature. Affecting 7443 vehicles, the recall centres on the CX-5's daytime running lights (DRLs), which could flicker while driving or fail to illuminate. In the event that the vehicle's headlights are not also on, inactive DRLs could reduce its visibility. Mazda Australia has confirmed it will contact affected owners to arrange inspection and free repair.
