2010-16 Porsche Panamera recalled

Porsche has recalled to 2010-2016 Panamera, over concerns about the car's air conditioning system. According to the company, moisture can seep into the air conditioning blower's control unit, which would cause malfunctions and short circuits within the system. In the worst case scenario, a short circuit could cause a fire. Affected vehicles were sold between July 12, 2009 and September 13, 2016. A total of 387 cars are included in the campaign – a VIN list is attached here.

Holden Colorado LSX: Affordable black-pack here to stay

Previously only a limited edition, Holden has made LSX specification as a permanent fixture in the Colorado range. Holden is calling it ‘affordable toughness’, slotting the popular black styling pack between the LS and LTZ in the Colorado range as a crew-cab 4X4. It keeps the vinyl floors, cloth seats, 7.0-inch infotainment display, hill descent control, a rear-view camera and rear park assist of the LS, but gains a lot of aesthetic changes.

Ford Edge dropped in the UK

Ford has decided to limit availability of its Edge SUV in Europe, known here as the Endura, due to slow sales in certain markets and ever-tightening emissions laws. A new report by Automotive News Europe says the Blue Oval's European arm will pull the Edge from markets like the UK – which also happens to be Ford's largest European market – while soldiering on in Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Poland, Austria, Belgium and Romania.
