2014-16 Ford F-250, F-350 recalled

Performax has recalled the 2014-16 Ford F-250 and F-350, over concerns their tie-rod ends could fail prematurely. According to the company, dry steering – turning the wheel while the car is stationary – can make the tie-rod end fail. If it fails the tie-rod end could come loose or break, increasing the risk of an accident or injury to vehicle occupants and other road users. A total of 148 cars are included in the recall – a VIN list is attached here.

2020 Audi RS3 pricing and specs

Audi's power-packed 2020 RS3 hatchback and sedan will go back on sale before the middle of 2020, after more than 12 months away from Australian showrooms. The compact Mercedes-AMG A45 rival has been absent since late 2018, when production delays caused by the rollout of strict new European emissions rules saw it removed from the local line-up. At its most popular, the RS3 accounted for around a quarter of all Audi A3 sales in Australia.
