2020 Kia Sorento recalled

Kia Australia has recalled the 2020 Sorento, over concerns about its autonomous emergency braking system. According to the company, the AEB system might fail when approaching a stationary pedestrian or vehicle. If the system doesn't recognise stationary objects, there's a risk the automatic brake assist mightn't activate, increasing the risk of accident or injury to the driver and other road users. A total of 3315 cars are included in the recall – a VIN list is attached here.

2020 Volkswagen Golf GTI spied

The Mk8 Volkswagen Golf GTI has been snapped testing in Europe. Don't be fooled by this particular Golf GTI's dowdy-looking front end, behind the clever camouflage is a more aggressive front bar with extra cooling for its more powerful engine. There are wider side sills and the rear is home to a racy-looking diffuser, along with larger exhaust pipes – that are actually exposed, not hidden behind a chrome insert on the bumper – hinting at the GTI's extra performance potential.

2014-19 Ford Mondeo recalled

Ford Australia has recalled the 2014-2019 Mondeo, over concerns about the battery. According to the company, battery acid could leak around the negative battery terminal. If copper sulphate accumulates over time, there's a chance a "low-resistance conductive layer" could form under the battery monitoring sensor, which could make the surrounding area ignite – even if the car is parked. There's a risk of injury to anyone around the car if it catches fire.
