Audi R8 to stick with V10 for this generation

The Audi R8 will see out its second generation with the existing 5.2-litre naturally-aspirated V10 engine as its sole powertrain option. In the first-generation car, the R8 was offered with a V10, while more affordable variants were powered by a 4.2-litre naturally-aspirated V8. The latter engine disappeared when the second-generation R8 was unveiled in 2015.

Ford Fiesta, Ranger recalled

Ford has recalled the 2010-16 Fiesta and 2011-15 Ranger, over concerns about the pawl spring tab in the side-door latch. According to the company, the spring tab in a side-door latch could break, which usually prevents the door from latching. If the car can be closed, however, the door could open while the vehicle is moving. That increases the risk of accident, and puts some occupants at risk of falling out of the vehicle while it's in motion.
